    Why do lizards do pushups?

    A:

    Lizards do pushups to communicate with other lizards, both male and female, especially if there is a lot of environmental noise that makes it difficult for the lizard to communicate vocally. Lizards often follow up the pushups with the head bob, which shows personal strength and conveys a territorial message to other lizards.
