Red-headed Rock Agama

Agama agama

Description:

Various females on pics 1 to 5, and a male (with not-that-dark blue body and pale orange head), in pic N°6.

Habitat:

Common african lizard, found in many habitats. Here, observed in various urban settings in Niger State of Nigeria.

Notes:

Recently, there were some changes in classification inside the A. agama species, and a number of subspecies became species - the whole issue was/is rather confusing - I previously thought these, ound in Nigeria would belong to the A. africana species; but the range seems very off according to IUCN maps...
