These little guys are everywhere this time of year. We love the lizards. They are not only entertaining but they eat bugs.
This guy is demonstrating “looking fancy” in his quest to attract a mate. This display of the inflatable under-chin sac is usually preceded by three pushups. And that, my friend, is how you attract a mate. Feats of strength (also one of the four pillars of Festivus) and a display of beauty. Strong AND good looking.
Life as a lizard isn’t all just attracting mates. You have to stay away from those who will eat you, too. There is a heron that walks the sidewalks of Ash Street hunting lizards for his lunch. He loves the palm trees in front of the Addison as they are full of lizards that are easy to reach.
