All for show. During courtship, the proboscis anole waves its horn from side to side to woo potential mates. Soft and flexible, the horn is not used for aggressive contact, but is conspicuous during foraging and displaying. Dominant males also show flamboyant colors, while subordinate males change change color to match the twig they are on and flatten themselves against it. But the twig lizard can't hide from habitat loss - a threat which it is extremely vulnerable due to its limited range. If its habitat continues to disappear, it could very well follow.
