Jaak Põder - Green when green
Male sand lizards turn green somewhere around the time the grass starts to turn green. They just need the temperature to be that high (>15 C) to become active and ready for mating. This is one of the species I have adored once I saw it. Of course, considering that in Estonia there lives only 5 species of Reptilia in the wild, it might not have so much meaning to it. But they do have a great character, and I think no-one can argue with that.
