An outrageous lizard

I've just returned from a wonderful journey with my kids and my head is filled with material for a blog.

However I am really just too tired to post anything that requires much thought, so I've decided to just share a photograph that I took

in Bulawayo of a male Blue Headed Tree Agama (Acanthocerus atricollis). There beautifu

l lizards take to the trees when threatened and try to always be on the opposite side of the tree from you. They also have a surprisingly effective bite, as I discovered many years ago when I saved an unappreciative specimen from drowning.
