  • Among clutch variation in reproductive output and egg size of the wall lizard (Podarcis muralis) are reported. Females under semi-natural conditions laid eggs from late April to early July. The smallest reproductive female in our sample was 51.2 mm SVL, and all females larger than this size produced at least one clutch per season. Of the 53 females, 13 laid three clutches, 27 laid two clutches, and 13 laid one clutch. Females that laid only one clutch were smaller than those laying two or three… CONTINUE READING
