garden lizard

Postby surajitkoley » Mon Sep 28, 2009 12:19 pm

Today I post 3 photos of Calotes versicolor. The first one is a female

and the second one is a male in breeding season

.
But the third one? Is it a male in non-breeding time owing to seasonal or/and adaptive color variation?

what?
How would I know that?

Nice pics. I went lizard viewing earlier today. All I spotted was a couple of green anoles (Anolis carolinensis) and a Southeastern five line skink (Eumceces inexpectatus). Just getting in a few more herp trips before winter arrives. :)

Thank you. As of skinks, there were many around us just a decade ago, but now I fail to find a single one. May be it's all outcome of extensive use of pesticides :( .

Over the past 9 months I've been able to find only one individual and that too for a few minutes only.
