    haha i was just riding home a few minutes ago and this guy caught my eye. He was busy showing off his bright colours to a female... it is just the end of winter so i had to catch him...no herps for a while...lol

    it is a Southern Tree Agama(for other nerds... acanthocercus atricollis)
    These guys are really agro lil buggers...like beardies on steroids...and they bite HARD! I got nailed by him:eek:

    You can see how bright his colours were when i spotted him...then once holding him went really dark. you can also see their two fang like teeth on their upper jaws...very cool critters... he was happy when i took him back to his girls tho... well after tasting me...haha(they bite and then don't let go)

    i haven't posted pics in a while so i snapped away...sorry there are so many of one agama...

    DON'T EVER APOLOGIZE FOR POSTING 'TOO MANY' PICTURES! hehe! He is very cute! So what's worse, getting mauled by an agama or peed on by a monkey? ;) You seem to have some bad herping luck ;)
