The growth of males and females of the tropidurid lizard Liolaemus lutzae was studied in the seasonal tropical habitat of the restinga da Barra de Maricá, Rio de Janeiro State, southeastern Brazil. Growth rates of lizards decreased with size in both sexes; the size specific growth rates of females were significantly lower than those of males. Adult males were larger than adult females. The data indicate that despite maturing at a larger size, males grow faster than females and mature at similar ages. There was a significant relationship between amount of rainfall and lizard growth rate in both sexes.
