Green lizards are very curious and not very shy. Every change in the garden will be investigated. A newly placed bench, garden statue, heap of sand, tool box or new bricks will be climbed upon and sniffed at after only a short time. They also just as easily climb on your shoes or up your pants. They accept food from your hand without problems.

Toads and tortoises too, quickly learn where and when there is food to get!

Ocellated lizards remain much shier and in my garden have never accepted food out of my hand. The Podarcis-species also remain much shier than the green lizards.
