Video: My collared lizards in their outdoor terrarium

Yesterday, I set up a tripod in an outdoor terrarium with my eastern collared lizards (Crotaphytus collaris) and let it record for half an hour. I edited it down to less than 2 minutes. The video “fades” are places where I cut out several minutes of motionless meditation on the part of the lizards.

Here you can see how the male interacts and displays, rapidly approaching to show off and nod at the females whenever they move a bit and how he sits on his “lookout rock” to keep watch over his family, looking out of the terrarium, watching the surroundings.
