Abstract

The seasonal and local variations of the diet of the lizard Eremias olivieri (Lacertidae) were studied on the Kerkennah islands, off the coast of Tunisia. A total of 247 stomach was examined. The wide range of the food items ingested, and the lack of a close relationship between the size of the prey and that of the predator, emphasizes the dietary opportunism of Eremias olivieri. Such a diet is considered as adaptive to the scarcity of food resources of the semi-desertic environment of the Kerkennah islands.
