The fan throated lizard (Sitana ponticeriana) males roam their territories in search of a female to impress and mate with. But the territories are often overlapping and when a intruder enters, there is a fight bound to happen. Here an intruder male displays it's fan throat as the territorial male locks it's target to attack.
