Agama Golden behavior

The Golden Agama is called many different names including "Clown Agama," "Painted Agama," "Short Toed Agama," and "Painted Dragon".

The Golden Agama is one of several subspecies of Laudakia stellio. There is some debate as to the exact number of subspecies, however, most of the research indicates that there are five accepted subspecies. All of the subspecies seem to prefer sandy habitats. In the wild they are commonly seen in trees, on rocks and walls, and hiding in crevices. They are generally timid, and will run for cover when startled. Males, however, can be territorial; and when they are in a defensive posture, they will chase opponents while shaking their heads. The Golden Agama is diurnal and is generally described as arboreal, though it will often make its home on rocks. In its native environment this lizard is relatively common and does not seem to be endangered. They are also fairly popular in the pet trade. The Golden Agama is reported to become accustomed to handling fairly easily, and they are generally not as aggressive as some other types of agama. Like many other animals, they usually do not like being approached quickly because they perceive this as threatening.
