This lizard has large eyes to aid it in its nightime hunt for insects. Its eyes are so big that its tail had to be longer for counterbalance. This species rarely comes out during the day except during mating season when the males develop chin horns which they use to scratch territory markers into tree bark. Each male has a distinct symbol to mark his district. The horns are also used to directly fend off other males and protect the females from eagles, which have learned to associate the bark scratches with the presence of dinner.
