Male southern water skinks ( Eulamprus heatwolei ) use both visual and chemical cues to detect female sexual receptivity
A wide range of organisms use chemical and visual cues in mate attraction and courtship; however, chemical discrimination relevant to reproduction and the interplay between these two types of communication are poorly understood in reptiles. We experimentally tested the ability of male Eulamprus heatwolei, a scincoid lizard, to discriminate between sexually receptive and non-receptive females in two ways. First, we conducted 155 staged encounters between males and females over 29 days to...[Show more]
