From a comic and movie superhero becomes a colourful lizard. The lizard in the photo is not being manipulated (not a photo manipulation). It is now the latest exotic pet craze. Mwanza flat-headed agama's vivid blue-and-red colouring, is a lizard that has a body skin colour similar like Spiderman.
Agamas which are native to Kenya can be good pet, as they become tame and docile if handled regularly. But it's a little fussy to take care of them because they require specialist equipment in the UK to maintain their temperature.
It can grow up to a foot long, and a balanced diet for them includes locusts, crickets, mealworms and waxworms. They unable to throw webs, but can change colour – the brightly coloured males will change brown at night or if frightened. They can also run on their hind legs, and can scale vertical walls like spiders.
