Bloooooooger likes me again and has allowed me to upload a video clip.
This Southern Fence Lizard (Sceloporus undulatus undulatus) is the same one from the Lizard Lounge Off post of recent history.
This lizard is a male, (see the blue patch?), and he is doing a territorial display. What's neat is that he is either ...
- ... doing it for the benefit of other lizards in the area as a territorial display with me, a large potential predator standing right there.
2. ... doing it to me to let ME know that this is his log and I should back off.
Either way, he gets points for bravado.
If you are feeling a bit stressed, watch the video repeatedly. The combination of someone else doing pushups coupled with soothing background noise is just the thing for office cubicle syndrome.
