Agama Agama Lizard

Agama Agama Lizard

This is a Red-headed Rock Agama (Agama Agama) Lizard, a common African Lizard, found frequently in resorts around buildings. Its diet consists mainly of insects.

This specimen measured around 8 inches. This image was captured on the red rocks of Mowani Lodge, Namibia, as we walked from our cabin to the dining room.

You may appreciate its incredible colours. The orange and blue present great colour harmony even blending in with its red-rock environment. Mother Nature, here busy teaching a pop-up course in colour-theory.
