Keeeyrist, can ya’ blame ’em?

When a very frequent ‘lounge’ “lizard” and I spotted a “bearded lady”, I had another drink, shook my head, mumbled ‘holy shit’ and walked, no, RAN away..

Male lizards tend to steer clear of bearded lady lizards

Trust science on this: Guys are generally not eager to mate with a high-testosterone bearded lady.  

But what goes on with other animals that share “male” ornamentation? Do the females pay a heavy price for aping the decoration of their sexual counterparts? If so, why would that trait survive?
