Some Kenyan lizards

I’ll have a separate gecko post (of course), and I’ve already written about the chameleons (1, 2), but here are some of the lizards I regularly saw around the research camp in Kenya.

I think this is a Somali Painted Agama, but I’m not sure:

Our most common lizard was the Red-headed Rock Agama. This is the female:

And the extremely noticeable male:

We found this skink at the research center…I’m not sure what species it was but it sure was smug:
