Anolis sagrei plays dead

In previous posts, Hispanioland shows us a picture of the fake dead behavior. This year I breed my pair of Anolis sagrei and I have several offsprings.

I can see that this behavior is rather common among the offsprings, and I partially film it in this vidéo. I didn’t see the same behavior in my others anoles species, maybe only for trunk-ground species?

In which species did you see this behavior?

In this case, the offspring begins to stiffen, twists and falls to the ground. Then opens his mouth and stops breathing. The limbs are tense as a dead person. When young sent back safety (some seconds later) the individual’s “awakening”.
