Among the five anole lizards they investigated, the three that live in open, sunny areas had dewlaps
that reflected UV light.
The estimates were 0.930.01, 0.730.02, 0.590.03 and 0.820.02 for naval length, dewlap
surface area and dewlap
: Male dewlap
as in holotype, large, extending to anterior third of venter, with broad scale rows 2-3 scales wide interspersed with smaller, single scales, scale rows separated by skin; female dewlap
present, small, extending to anterior edge of shoulder, scale rows as in males (see coloration).
Only large adult males were used in the study due to the fact that they are larger and more conspicuous due to their social dewlap
Perineum, udder and external genitalia are the most tick infested sites followed by dewlap
, inner thighs, neck and back, tail, ears, around eyes, flanks, and legs (Atif et al., 2012).
Herd parity and stage of lactation effects were significant for stature central ligament and dewlap
surface area (Pless than .001-.05).
Their ears are generally large and pendulous, and the throatlatch and dewlap
have a large amount of excess skin.
Stalk height (measured from base to the top visible dewlap
) and diameter (measured at the center of the stalk) were recorded in each of 20 stalks per plot.
It was a huge animal, with a great black forelock, a long dewlap
and shoulders like the cargo doors on a C-47.
Male green anoles have a dewlap
, a flap of pink skin under their necks, which they flare to attract females or establish territorial dominance.
Its phenotypic characteristics include a large sized flabby body with small horns, long ears, well-developed hump in males, and large dewlap
in both males and females (Farooq et al., 2010).
The legs are short and thick and the neck long with a large dewlap
. The coat is brown-black to dark gray.
