Agama picticauda, the African redhead agama;
Miami-Dade county, Florida (02 September 2011).
Also known as Peter’s rock agama, the African redhead agama is a non-native species now well established throughout much of south Florida. Steadily, they’ve been working their way northward, popping up here and there. This individual is an adult male. Females and young males sport more mottled and muted colors, lacking the bright orange head contrasted with deep purple-blue body tone.
