Why Does This Lizard Have Such Fabulous Colours?

Despite having the underwhelming name the `common wall lizard', this lizard sports some amazing colours on its underside. Although its back is a boring brown colour, presumably to be less visible to predators, the males have some fabulous colours on their bellies, as well as UV-blue patches down their sides (sadly not visible to us).
