Abstract: Intraspecific encounters were staged between adult male Anolis marcanoi and A. cybotes in order to describe their aggressive behavior. The major component of stationary behavior is the dewlap display, accompanied by various static and dynamic modifiers. Advancing behaviors include moving toward an opponent, threatening attack, and actual biting. The aggressive behavior of A. marcanoi is progressive and hierarchically structured. By contrast, the behavior of A. cybotes is less elaborate and ritualized than that of its sibling and lacks progressive structure.
