We report preliminary data on the natural history and biometry gathered during a short-term study in a Corsian population of the lizard Lacerta bedriagae . Lizards were encountered at heights of 1650-1950 m. Main characteristics of its habitat are the presence of large rocks, boulders and rock pavements. Three size (age) classes were distinguished. Adult males average larger in body size and have larger heads and limbs than females. Females mature at a body size of 66-68 mm. Earth-worms, arthropods and plant leafs were recorded as food items.
