Ontogenetic habitat shift and risk of cannibalism in the common chameleon (Chamaeleo chamaeleon)


Ontogenetic habitat shifts have been documented in numerous fish and amphibians and in some reptiles. Intraspecific competition together with differential predation, prey size, social interactions, size-related thermal requirements, and morphological constraints on movement are often implicated in this ontogenetic habitat separation. In the current study… (More)
