Anderson’s Rock Agama Raydah Escarpment near Abha – Record by Munzir Khan

Whilst birdwatching in the Abha area, in the mountains of southwest Saudi Arabia, Munzir came across an Anderson’s Rock Agama. This species is endemic to the Arabian Peninsula, where it is found in west and south Arabia, from Taif (Saudi Arabia) in the north to Dhofar (Oman) in the east. It is found to around 2,000 metres above sea level. It is common in Saudi Arabia where it is a rock dwelling lizard mainly present in mountainous areas. I thank Munzir for sending me the photo that he has kindly allowed me to use on my website.
