When the Sitana thought I was a Dentist

This was a very memorable interaction with the Fan Throated Lizard. I was helping 2 friends working on the species. In the burning heat of 40-degree Celsius we were sitting near a wind mill. We were watching a male of the species display and please the female. As I watched my two scientist friends note down their readings about the Sitana behaviour, I reached out to click some image they could use in their report. So I reach out to my camera bag. And there he was, another male running with his throat fan puffed towards the romantic Sitana couple. While he was making his way to the pair, he was running past me. He then saw me, froze for a second, stared at me and then dash towards the pair. Both the makes then displayed aggression, got into a fight. What was the female doing by then? Well, she was on her way to look out for a more vibrant, peaceful guy.
