This study deals with several features of the reproductive biology of Lacerta monticola cyreni. It was carried out in a lizard population in the Sierra de Guadarrama (Central Spain). Owing to the hard weather conditions the lizards have a very short active season (nearly six months). The annual gonadal cycle of both sexes shows an unimodal distribution which demonstrates the existence of only one mating and only one clutch per year. Mating occurs in May-June. Females lay a clutch of 4 to 9 eggs, usually during July. Finally, hatching takes place in September, one month before the beginning of hibernation in October.
