Corucia zebrata,-live in colonies, Tiliqua (trachydosaurus) rugosus -form permanent pair bonds, basilisks-live in groups- basically harem type situations, Anoles-same as basilisks (easily observed here in fl if you ignore mickey mouse and look around you). there are countless other examples of social structure in reptiles particularly in lizards. There was a researcher here in fl. whose name escapes me right now. he did research on gopher tortoises and found that they communicate with sounds below our range of hearing and determined that they have a language similar to that of whales ( his words not mine....He did a talk about it one year for the CFHS .) as I said his name escapes me right now but he was a well respected researcher on gopher tortoises.
Reptile social structures may not be on the level of wolves or Lions or Domestic rats but they do exist and quite often on a level comparable to many species of artiodactyls.
