South Indian Rock Agama

This is the wonder of this species, how it gets colour changed to be camouflaged in its habitat? - Look into this collage, the three images made in 15 mins time of the same agama when it came out from different stone pattern.

This type of behaviour is called as Criptic colouration - which allow species to change its colour to match with background and become less vulnerable to predators...

The predators for rock agama are mostly the birds.

South Indian Rock Agama is endemic to south India only, found in rocky hills and western ghats but not in eastern ghats.

They are very particular common around Bangalore! Our own species....
