About "Southern Tree Agama"
I was inspired to create this sculpture after seeing these beautiful creatures sunning themselves on the palm trees outside my house in Durban.
Edition of 10, 7 available for purchase.
This charismatic creature is often seen sunning itself
on a tree or other prominent spots in the garden or
wilderness. It is a large lizard (20 -35cm) with a fat
belly, spiny body, narrow neck and well developed legs.
With closer inspection these reptiles seem to have
unusually long toes and wide strong looking jaws.
Females and juveniles have cryptic, lichen coloured
bodies with the breeding males displaying a
conspicuously bright cobalt blue head.
They feed on a diversity of small insects including
termites, but prefer flying insects.
In the summer months the females can lay between
4- 14 eggs in a small hole which they dig in the ground.
The eggs are then covered where they are left to
incubate by the heat of the sun hatching after about
Tree Agamas are commonly found from the Eastern
Bushvelt down to the southern limits of coastal
