Using the mark-recapture method a population of Teius oculatus was studied during four month (dic. 2/1987 - march 22/1988). The population density was measured, age groups were defined the annual cycle was described and the individual daily growth was calculated to test differences between age groups and the possible correlations between growth and individual snout vent length. Density was different for each period, the age groups were three: hatching, juveniles and adults, which change during the active period, being hatch mg the last in retiring. Individual growth rate changed for each age group and growth and snout vent length are negatively correlated.
