Re: Keeping a Natal Green Snake

Help with lizard identification please

Hi All,

My son caught this lizard in our garden (in Zululand, KZN). Firstly I would like to identify it, and secondly enquire as to whether they can be kept as pets (i.e. will they survive, is it legal, are they suited to captivity).

Thank you
Regards

Richard
