Great Angle Head Lizard- Gonocephalus grandis ♂♀

Beautiful Great Angle Head Lizards perching on tree trunks to sun themselves for energy~

 

The male (left) has cool-looking body crests and richer body colours as compared to the female (right). Both lizards display yellow ventral spots although the ones on the males are surrounded by bluish body tints. Like most lizards, these will change colour depending on behaviour and environment.

 

Male may fight with one another, but usually the females will choose the males with the most brilliant display of colours- an indication of good genes and health essential for the survival of their next generation!
