Agama Lizard

Agamas are mainly insectivores. Their incisor-like front teeth are designed for quick cutting and chewing of their prey. They may also eat grass, berries, seeds and even the eggs of smaller lizards.


Most agamas are polygamous. Males may hold six or more females in their territory for breeding. During courtship, the male bobs his head to impress the female. Occasionally, females initiate courtship by offering their hindquarters to the male and then running until he is able to catch up.




Striped Skink

The striped skink is a medium sided lizard that feeds on small insects (beetles, moths, etc.) and other small invertebrates. They can be found in Eastern Africa, south to former Transkei and North Eastern Cape, extending along the Orange River to the Richtersveld, and west through Zambia to Angola and Southern Namibia.



Nile Monitor Lizard

Nile monitors are the largest lizards in Africa and can grow to about 3 ft 11 in to 7 ft 3 in in length, with the largest specimens attaining 8 ft. In an average-sized specimen, the snout-to-vent length will be around 50 cm (1 ft 8 in). Nile Monitors are also the largest lizards in Florida after being introduced there as escaped pets. Nile monitors will eat anything that fits into their mouth and can be swallowed as a whole, like fish, snails, slugs, frogs, toads, eggs (in particular crocodile eggs), birds, small mammals, young crocodiles, turtles, crabs, large insects, termites, caterpillars and carrion.
