Courting between Male and Female Lizards

There are many different courting behaviors and rituals; among lizards. Many species bob their heads up and down, and display their dewlaps. Several other species, including agamas and chameleons, move their front leg up and down or in a circular motion. Some lizards are known to bite the other during courtship. Lizards seldom eat while courting, with minimal drinking as well. This is normal and you should not be concerned if the lizards are kept healthy. After mating takes place, the lizards will eat at a slightly accelerated rate.
