expected to increase with body size, especially when sexes are examined separately, since body size reflects lizard age. 2. Mediodactylus kotschyi inhabits many more islands than H. turcicus because their regenerated tails keep their cryptic form and function for avoiding predation, unlike the

-tailed individuals is not related to body size (age) is weakened by their not having conducted the analysis separately per sex. The more so since in Mediodactylus (unlike Hemidactylus ) the males are smaller than the females ( Werner, 2016 ). There is some evidence that on islands lacking terrestrial predators

suggested measurement by which to determine the main foraging mode of C. vipera Candidate factors that may lead animals of the same species to use different foraging modes include temperature, starvation level, body size and sex ( Elner, 1980 ; Wikelski, 2005 ; Higginson and Ruxton, 2015 ).

intraspecific competition likely. In fact, H. picta shows vertical partitioning based on body sizes, with smaller leeches waiting for pray at lower elevations and larger leeches selecting higher foliage ( Miler et al., 2019 ). Wrestling may be a mean of competing for ambush site, with loser in the wrestling
