Fanning for a Reason !!
Do both the displays mean different ?
Let’s see some interesting facts
The image on the right where we only see the fan is for attracting females whereas the one on the left where we also see fan shaped structure on the spine and head is for aggression display to nearby males.
Interestingly the orange colour of the fan is for females as they get attracted by that whereas the blue and the black colour is for male interactions showcasing aggression.
We observed and documented this behaviour of showcasings when on field at Chalkewadi plateau Satara district of Maharashtra.
