A note of interest has been the observation of a Southern Rock Agama (Agama atra) living in a household environment in Beacon Bay, East London. These squat bodied lizards are covered in small, rough spiny or keeled scales. The teeth are differentiated into canines and incisors and they have small eyes with round pupils and moveable eyelids.
Limbs are well developed and the digits have strong recurved claws. They are mostly rock-living or terrestrial but some species are aboreal. Males are larger than females and become brightly coloured when breeding. Females lay eggs (5-18) in mid-summer and these take about 8 weeks to hatch.
