  1. Impressice photo! Very sharp and what a color!, almost looks like the white balance was off...
    I noticed the very large ears. Hearing must be very imported to this agama because normally agama (and most reptiles) hardly have any ears.

    1. Thanks. Yes, they are very bright in color. I only upped the contrast a bit, white balance was on "cloudy", which is a default I use almost always. Posted 8 years ago
  2. Too close and clear, one of the best shot Ferdy !! Posted 8 years ago

    1. Nice video! Note that the species in the video is the Red-headed Agama, which is a different species often confused with this one.

      Also, did you know that you can add videos not only to comments, but also to species records in JungleDragon?

  6. Thanks... i did not know that... i am just trying it i have uploaded a new topic in forum please let me know if there is anything wrong ... Posted 8 years ago
    1. There's nothing wrong, you can embed videos in comments, forum posts (there is also a special video forum), and you can associate them with species. If you have a video of one particular species, it is probably best to embed them at the species level, in all other cases freely use comments and forum posts. I hope this helps... Posted 8 years ago
      1. sure.. thanks

The Mwanza flat-headed rock agama , a lizard in the family Agamidae, is found in Tanzania, Rwanda, and Kenya. It lives in semideserts and can often be seen in the heat of the day basking on rocks or kopjes.
