On the Gouldian front it is a pretty quiet time of the year in the Kimberley, but a project on a new study species in the area has just started…. the frillneck lizard! This project will be looking at temperature-dependent sex allocation and maternal effects, as well as the role that the coloured frill plays in signalling to mates, rivals and predators in this iconic species. David and Lucy have become expert lizard catches (with no scars to boast about… yet!).
