oa Madoqua - New data on a sand-shuttling Eye-Popping Lizard
Thirty years elapsed since the discovery of Agama Makarikarica, before it was observed that it displayed a peculiar sand-shuttling behaviour. In thIs paper it is reported that it practices a kind of eye-popping as well. The possibility of an underlying hydraulic mechanism is discussed. A very peculiar distribution pattern in Southern Africa is recorded, together with new distribution records along the Etosha Pan.
