Maybe I haven’t spent enough time in my life watching lizards, but on a rocky beach in northern Chile the other day, saw a lizard that had raised some flaps on top of its head as it watched me. At first I thought the flaps were something like ears, but their ear openings are farther back on the side of the head. Now, I tried some searches on the web, typing phrases like : do lizards have ears, or, flaps on lizard head, etc, and saw lots of fun pictures..... but nothing quite like this..... So, is their a lizard expert out there who can enlighten us as to the anatomical purpose of the scaly flaps on this lizard’s handsome head ?
