Tata Lizard, Lophognathus gilberti

Tata Lizard, Lophognathus gilberti
Ubirr, Kakadu, Northern Territory, Australia

Named after Leichardt's companion, Gilbert who got speared (probably as a consequence of breaking traditional law), the Tata lizard is also named because of its rather charming habit of waving its forearm about in a circular motion just before running off. This behaviour is not only used by females flirting with males (and testing their reproductive fitness in the breeding season) but may well be used as a means of drawing the eye to the spot where the lizard was, rather than where it actually is.
