Description: The rocky Coast Range of California is the setting for an unusual game played by a brightly colored side-blotched lizard. Each male of the species has one of three throat colors, and each color of lizard has a different mating behavior. The lizards play a game like rock-paper-scissors. Each type of lizard has its own strategy for mating with females. As in rock-paper-scissors, sometimes one strategy wins, sometimes another... [Produced 10 times a year by the publishers of Cricket magazine (in association with Smithsonian magazine), Muse features articles and activities for children 8 years old and up.]
