A male lizard displays bright colours on its throat as it tries to attract females. The fan-throated lizard suddenly revealed a burst of bright colours that unfolded on a flap of skin from its neck.

Highly territorial, the brown reptile perched on a thorny bush to give itself the best chance of picking up a mate. IT specialist Indranil Basu Mallick, 34, observed the lizard's behaviour near his home in Pune, India.
