Effects of Surface Roughness on the Locomotion of a Long-Tailed Lizard, Colobodactylus taunayi Amaral, 1933 (Gymnophthalmidae: Heterodactylini)
Comparison of the (a) maximal relative speed, (b) maximal stride frequency, and (c) maximal relative stride length of five Gymnophthalmidae species running on sand and gravel. 1 = Vanzosaura rubricauda (), 2 = Procellosaurinus tetradactylus (), 3 = Micrablepharus maximiliani (), 4 = Colobosaura modesta (), and 5 = Colobodactylus taunayi (). These are average maximal values reach by studied individuals in each species. Bars are SD. Data other than for species 5 are from Renous and coauthors  (1-2) and Renous and coauthors  (3-4).
