What are we asking for?
Dr. Deah Lieurance with the UF/IFAS Assessment is requesting your help with photos of peters’s rock agama in or around cars, lumber, freight…basically anything that would illustrate them hitchhiking to new locations. These will be used for UF research and extension purposes. Photo credits will be provided; however, we are unable to provide compensation. If you would like to participate, please send your photos to Ken Gioeli at firstname.lastname@example.org or Dr. Deah Lieurance at email@example.com
About Peters’s rock agama
Peters’s rock agama are striking nonnative reptile species in Florida most notable because of the males’ colorful skin and relatively large size as compared to Florida’s native lizards. Adult males can grow to 12 in. including the tail, but females don’t grow quite as large. In addition to their size difference, males and females may look very different. In Florida, adult males in breeding condition are boldly marked with an orange or red head, a black body, and a black-tipped tail immediately preceded by orange coloration.
