Female Anderson's Rock Agama - Tanoumah

Whilst birding the fields in Tanoumah I came across some female Anderson's Rock Agama Acanthocercus adramitanus. Rather than being the brightly coloured males I normally see, these were much duller. As I was not certain of the identity of them I sent the photos to Mansur Al Fahad a local expert on lizards, as well as most things to do with nature in general. He very kindly identified them for me as female Anderson's Rock Agama. They are very common in the Abha/Tanouma area and I see them every time I go out birding.
