Non.ritualised social behaviour patterns of the nocturnal Madagascan gecko, Paroedura pictus are described, and the ritual elements of the agonistic dialogue (approaches, threatening displays, confrontations) are analysed. A repertory of gestures is observed, comparable in its diversity to that of diurnal lizards such as the Iguanidae, as well as some behavioural flexibility. The group structure is a hierarchical one of despotic character. The absence of territorial behaviour in this very aggressive species has been proved experimentally.
