Tree Agamas, or “Bloukopkoggelmanders”, (Acanthocerus atricollis)
possibly Weesgerus’s most colourful common reptile. Weesgerus is a wonderful holiday resort near Nylstroom or Modimolle as this town is now called. (South Africa)

Agamids, lizards of the family Agamidae, include more than 300 species in Africa, Asia, Australia, and a few in Southern Europe. Phylogenetically they may be sister to the Iguanidae, and have a similar appearance. Agamids usually have well-developed, strong legs. Their tails cannot be shed and regenerated like those of geckoes, though a certain amount of regeneration is observed in some. Info
