Its displays of behavior such as ritualized aggression, and reproductive courtship and also the defense mechanisms that this species uses makes this species’s survival one of the most fascinating in the island.
For starters, territoriality plays an important role in the dragon reproductive behavior as the male dragons react to the approach or the song of another male, as a potential rivalry, which then starts a display of ritualized aggression between them, as they continued to make rough “cheech” noises while displaying their blood red frills (which is an example of sexual dimorphism as
