This one is for George Veltchev – I hope this ones better than my last posting of an Agama Lizard. I previously placed a not so very good photo of an Agama and have been looking for them since then and finally found quite a few today when we took our grand daughters to an animal farm near Tzaneen. Looks like this one lost it’s tail at some stage.

Enjoy and comments are welcome.

Agamas are all quite similar, with small spiky scales on the body, large round heads and small but prominent eyes. They are medium to large with well-developed legs and long claws on the toes. In most species the tail is longer than the body.
All Agamas are active during the day. Some excavate burrows in the ground or live in rock crevices; others seek out holes in trees or shelter under loose bark. They are quick alert lizards that scuttle off rapidly when approached; tree agamas move to the opposite side of the tree.

Hello Natley,
Excellent photo of this agama in beautiful camouflaged colours and excellent sharpness. Taken from a nice POV in a good composition.

WOW excellent he blends so perfectly into the bark~!

dear Natley,

thank you wholeheartedly for this beautiful dedication, and what a stunning Agama this is indeed! Those fascinating creatures can have so different coloration and even shape. Sorry for missing this incredible shot Natley...thank you ...I am flattered ! ;)
