Abstract: The habitat selection of Lacerra vivipara was studied in an area of inland dunes by comparing the relative occurrence of individuals with the relative presence of a number of potential habitats. Habitats with a strong spatial heterogeneity were clearly preferred, no matter whether they were humid or dry. The microhabitat of this lizard was always there where good possibilities for thermoregulatory behaviour were present within a very limited area. No differences in habitat selection were found for the age classes and sexes.
