The 20 Most Colorful Lizards on Earth

Lizards come in so many different colours! While most animals are happy to take on the colors of their environment for camouflage purposes, different species of lizards dress in colors designed to stand out from the crowd during mating season. Check out this blue agama lizard, found in the desert around the Red Sea, looks ready to take on all comers in a race.

In fact, male agama lizards get their most striking coloring during the mating season, with their heads (and sometimes tails) turning bright orange. More cool pictures here.
