Gilts It is threatened as a strictly protected by British law and - as in most of Europe (it is a European protected artery) is. This stands in contrast to Lacerta agilis exigua, whose Russian name translates as "common lizard". The female lays eggs in the sand lizard loose sand in a sunny location so that they are incubated by the heat of the soil. The British Herpetological Conservation Trust is the leading partner in the UK Species Action Plan (SAP) for the sand lizard.
