Abstract : The status of biodiversity in general & species diversity in particular is always under anthropogenic threat throughout the world in varieties of habitats where human beings have started building their shelter. Nevertheless, the natural profile of species diversity at habitat level & biodiversity at biospheric level always displays temporal & spatial variation in time and space. The present article deals with the temporal variation of garden lizard sampled in different seasons from Madhepura during 2013. Lizards being important member of lacertilian reptiles are also exposed to different degree of endangerment and threatening pressure over their species members due to such interference. The present paper is an attempt to bring on record different species of garden lizards present in various terrestrial habitats of Madhepura district. Eight different species of garden lizards have been sampled and identified from these habitats & their cumulative species diversity index through Shannon-Weiner equation (S-W) has also been statistically computed on the basis of their individual population per unit area during the sampling period. The result reflects their survival status only
