Observations on the reproductive biology of the green lizard lacerta viridis reptilia sauria lacertidae


Salamandra 18(3-4): 121-137
Observations on the reproductive biology of the green lizard lacerta viridis reptilia sauria lacertidae
The social behavioral patterns between both sexes of the green lizard (L. viridis) in captivity, observed during a complete mating season, are described. The single elements of these behavioral sequences, often developed from ritualization, display, running on the spot, turning round and handling of the female and tail-biting and march of mating are discussed. Behavioral patterns which prevent or terminate a copulation and those of the actual copulation are provided. How each partner comprehends a variety of different behavior patterns and responds to them specifically (= intraspecific communicative elements) are discussed.
