Data from: Body size and evolution of motion dazzle coloration in lizards

Gopal Murali & Ullasa Kodandaramaiah
‘Motion dazzle’ patterns are a form of defensive coloration suggested to prevent successful capture during motion by causing predators to misjudge the direction or speed of prey movement. Several studies have found results supporting this idea, but little is known about the factors that favour the evolution of these antipredator colorations. A recent experimental study has suggested that the longitudinal striped patterns on body of lizards can redirect attacks to the tail via the motion...
