|A male Granite Spiny Lizard moves over to a female who is basking on a nearby rock and presents himself to her. She's not interested and slowly moves away from him with her back and tail slightly arched then does some push-ups. He retreates and does some push-ups.||A Male Granite Spiny Lizard (the same guy as the one to the left, a few minutes after that video ended) does his territorial push-up display, lifting his body high off the rock, pausing briefly to eat something with his big pink tongue.||Several adult lizards are shown in various rocky habitats.|
