Howzit,

I have some lizard photos from my trip to KNP that I am hoping for some help in identifying.

Is this one Agama Atra, Southern Rock Agama or maybe Tree Agama, Acanthocerus Atricollis. Well, its in a tree but it looks blue to me which makes in more comparable to the rock agama according to my book.

Please can you help with an ID. I saw this chap at Orpen in March 2010. Size approx 18-20 cm

It looks similar to the very first post on this thread which was ID'd as a Tree Agama but then subsequent tree agamas are quite different.

Thanks

Looks like a female Tree agama to me, the one on the first page looks like a non-breeding male tree agama (yellow tail showing somewhat).....

Aaah, yes I do agree now.

I shall eat some humble pie - I was wrong, not only about this one but also about the one on the front page. Hopefully its not too late for chirinda to come back and get the correct ID.

I have been told off not only by you but from a colleague who suggests that the main identifying feature is the black spot/patch on the shoulder. This is clear in both pictures and identifies it without doubt to being a tree agama. Ground agamas do not have this spot.

my apologies for being an oaf :tongue:
