Re: ID help needed for lizard

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

I saw this Tree Agama in the Kruger National Park last year.

Most agamas are polygamous. Males may hold six or more females in their territory for breeding.
