The kinematics of prey capture, intraoral transport and swallowing in lizards of the species Agama stellio (Agamidae) were investigated using cineradiography (50 frames s-1) and high-speed video recordings (500 frames s-1). Small metal markers were inserted into different parts of the upper and lower jaw and the tongue. Video and cineradiographic images(More)
The activity of jaw and hyolingual muscles during the entire feeding sequence is examined in the lizard Agama stellio, with special focus on the intraoral transport and swallowing stages. Correlation of electromyography (EMG) data with kinematics shows that the kinematic phases (slow opening, SO; fast opening, FO; fast closing, FC; slow closing/power(More)
