A very blue Sinai Agama – Records by Viv Wilson

Whilst birding near Tabuk, Viv Wilson found a very blue coloured Sinai Agama. Populations can be found on vertical rocks, rock steps and amongst boulders often in the vicinity of water. They can occur in precipitous wadis surrounded by dense vegetation, with the animals usually seen on the top of boulders. They do not however require water, obtaining moisture from their insect prey. I thank Mansur Al Fahad for correcting the identity of this Agama.
