Wow! Both of them are so pretty! What a great example of sexual dimorphism!!

I am in agreement with the biologist Carolina. The first one is definitely a male and the second the female. The males have display coloration to attract females of this species. The females have "dull" coloration because they don't need to "show off" for mates.

Mitch, I have a biologist saying the first one is the male, and the second one the female. What do you think?

Good call! I didn't notice the collar on the female until you mentioned that. Very cool lizards and great photos!

Totally! Gonatodes albogularis fuscus right?
You know I think they are both the same species, but female and male...
