May somedody help me to ID this agamia?
Thanks a lot!

non conosco esattamente il nome scientifico di questo agamide, se qualcuno lo s: please help!

Come gi sapete per me tanto importante l'elefante quanto una piccola lucertola con la testa arancione... quindi ho speso un bel po' di tempo a seguire questa e a cercare di fare una foto decente, molto veloce ed diffidente ma ho trovato una zona dedicata ai pic-nic dove c'erano alcuni esemplari confidenti (x fortuna!).

Ciao ciao

Hello Andrea,
Fantastic capture of this beautiful Agama lizard in bright colours. I love its pose and details are very sharp. Very nice soft background and a brilliant composition in fine colours.
Many thanks and cheers, Ulla

Hello Andrea!

Bella bella davvero.
Un saluto Piero

Hi Andrea
Really cool and colorful Agama lizard (as Ulla said) in his natural environment.

hi Andrea, excelent coloures of this lizard , good composition,

Beh, riuscita molto bella questa foto: colori stupendi, nitidezza ottima, ottimo anche il POV. In pi si nota bene che tiene sollevati buona parte dei piedi per non scottarsi. Dieci e lode.

Ciao e grazie, Emanuele

esemplare stupendo

What a wonderful colored Agama you've captured her Andrea.
It is the Agama agama also known as red-headed rock agama.
Beautiful hoe the colors stand out against the sandy color tones of the rock.
Lovely pose of the animal in wich it seems to run away from you.
Excellent work. Thanks for sharing.
Best wishes, Harry

From Wikipedia:

One of the best known species is the red-headed rock agama (Agama agama), widespread in sub-Saharan Africa. Its original habitat is the savanna, but today it also lives within villages and towns. These agamas form groups of ten to twenty. The "leader" is an old male, while females and young males constitute the other members of the group. The colour is dark brown at night, but after dawn the colours of the dominant male will change: the body becomes light blue, head and tail bright orange. These colours may change again depending on the dominant male's mood. For instance, if male agamas fight, their heads will turn brown, and white spots appear on their body. Fights take place when a foreign agama male appears. It will try to dispute the leadership of the dominant male. When fighting, agamas hiss and attempt to hit each other's head with their tail. These strokes may be very violent and often result in haematomas or fractured jaws.
The females in the group are entirely brown. Often there is a highest-ranking female that remains in proximity to the leading male and struggles to repel other females.
