Thread: Draco mating

  1. #1

    Default Draco mating

    A series of images showing the mating of the Southern Flying lizard (draco). Note how they display the Gular pouch in tandem and the larger size of the Gular of the male. The male also displays for a much longer time (about 5-7 seconds) than the female. The female is larger in size and has a beter camouflage than the male. The previous feeding series I have posted shows a female.

    these images are big crops as the lizards were up a tree.

    The male in full display is a spectacular sight.

    Lovely record of mating behavior of draco mating. They are so well camouflaged very difficult to spot. The gular pouch of the male is nicely captured. Thanks for sharing this amazing series and information.
