Sins my last post was about working with new species, I figured this one fits the bill.
Though its not acanthosaura or gonocephalus it’s a tree agama nevertheless and surly has its way on this forum.

Last week I obtained a pair of these nice Tanzanian tree agamas, at first sight I didn’t think much of them, both where dark brown and showed no colors, my male was basically skin and bones, obviously parasites as his faecal smelled awfully, it took 4-5 days for him to start feeding, when he did green coloration started showing off and deep blue under chin, mine is the ugly one on photo, the nice blue one is a photo from a tourist showing how they become as adults.

Not much is known about there care, I started them in a basic set up and raised the temps until feeding, sins the female started feeding first I separated them so I could monitor the males food intake, they love to bask at higher temps 130f, and started feeding on mealworms first.

I love there size no more then a hand full, they don’t have a flight response as most agamas have, instead they remain motionless making them easy to pick up and handle, they don’t bite!
They are quit active compared to acanthosaura’s, love to climb, stay on display and colourful, if you see them try your hand at these, an easy to love lizard.
