Abstract: The Optical variability of the three TeV blazars, Mrk 421, Mrk 501 and 1ES 2344+514, has been investigated on timescales ranging from minutes to decades. The character of the variations has been investigated and compared with that observed for radio-selected BL Lacs. These results will be discussed, and the implications for the X-ray selected BL Lac (XBL) / radio-selected BL Lacs (RBL) dichotomy will be discussed.
