Short summary
The rapid expansion of urban environments invariably presents a novel series of pressures on wildlife due to changes in environmental factors. In reptiles, any changes in temperature may be critical for their thermal ecology. How reptiles adapt to such changes may vary from those species that are impacted negatively to others that have the behavioural flexibility to exploit new conditions. This paper describes a behaviour change in in the African lizard, Agama agama.
