It can be splendidly countered by invoking - in
addition to plasticity* - founder effects, drift, and
plain old natural selection.


* I am not sure if plasticity is really the key here.
More like within-population variation being acted upon
by the above. Or are the features observed inducible
in almost any randomly chosen individual of those lizards?
