Cool! Thank you IraquitanCordeiroFilho!
During the breeding season, the male's head and shoulders turns bright orange to crimson and his throat black. Males also turn red-headed after a successful battle with rivals. Thus their other gruesome name of "Bloodsucker Lizard" although they don't actually suck anybody's blood. [Wikipedia]
WOWZERS! I have never seen a lizard turn bright red like that! I wonder if these are breeding colors or if this is a dominance/territorial display? Congrats on a beautiful series!
