Mama Or Papa Lizard – Maybe?

To the best of my knowledge, lizards lay their eggs and aren’t real maternal or paternal after they hatch, but I could be wrong. We definitely have at least four or five or six micro lizards running around the front door and driveway, and I’ve seen adult lizards there in the past. But yesterday for the first time after seeing the juvenile lizards I saw a fairly large adult out there.

There were several of the tiny ones around. Given the territorial nature of lizards, I would think that this big one would be driving off or killing the little ones – unless it’s her/his nest.

Maybe? I’m working from a position of ignorance here. But the front yard lizard social dynamics are looking complex!
