These were by far the most commonly seen agamids (dragons) around Shark Bay. On my first hike in this area, I saw about ten of these guys, along with just one other lizard (a Lozenge-marked Dragon). This one was soaking up the late afternoon sun while keeping a wary eye on me.

Here is a complete list of the reptiles and frogs I saw on this trip to Western Australia.

Here are a few more photos from the next day. I suppose if you lived out here you could grow tired of seeing these lizards, but I'd have to see many hundred more before that was a possibility.

Four years later, back in the same spot looking (unsuccessfully) for thorny devils, and it is still the case that the most common lizards are these guys.

I’ve written up an account of this three-week trip to Australia here.

Is it just me, or are these lizards getting more and more sleepy-looking as the years go by?
