Flap Necks

The males of flap necks (Chamaeleo dilepis) have higher casques and occipital lobes than females and have tarsal spurs behind each of the hind legs. However, the females of these species tend to be larger than males.

Here's a nice little link you can refer to:

EDIT:
Here's a journal article (don't know if it's been published yet) that talks about various Kenyan species and their basking behaviour. If anything, read the discussion that starts on the bottom of page 5. Hope the link works.

Uh. I'm not even going to write how wrong I think that is. Being ignorant is not funny in my opinion.

Kidding or not, I still think it's wrong. Even joking words can hurt as I'm sure you know.

I agree with pssh. I know Laurie was kidding but allencg took it too far. I hope you didn't just offend and alienate any of our current or potential forum members who now won't feel comfortable sharing any personal details for fear of being discriminated against. I know I'm offended and it doesn't even apply to me. I have friends that don't fit your sterotypes at all and you judge without even knowing them. Keep that stuff to yourself, joking or not.
