Rainbow agamas are reptiles that appear in The Lion Guard universe. They live in the Pride Lands and the Outlands.

Appearance

In the Real World

Rainbow agamas can be identified by having a white underside, brown back limbs and a tail with a light stripe down the middle. The stripe on the tail typically possesses about six to seven dark patches along their sides. Females, adolescents and subordinate males have olive green heads, while a dominant male have a blue body and yellow tail.

In The Lion Guard

Rainbow agamas look pretty much the same as they are in real life.

Information

In the Real World

Rainbow agamas are primarily insectivores, but they have been known to eat small mammals, reptiles and vegetation. They catch their prey using their tongue, the tip of which is covered by mucous glands that enable the lizard to hold to smaller prey.

Male agamas are territorial and must fight other males to claim their space. Agamas live in social groups including a lead male, about half a dozen females, and subordinate males. Subordinate males can only gain their own group if they eliminate the existing lead male—the cock—or establish a colony outside all other cocks' territory. Only the cock is allowed to mate with the females. The center of a cock's territory is usually marked by the presence of a physical object, such as a tree or boulder, on which the lizards congregate. In urban areas fights between males are more common because space is at a higher premium.

Females are sexually matured at fourteen to eighteen months, while males take two years. The agama agama tend to reproduce during the wet season, but can also reproduce in areas that receive constant rainfall. After fertilization and when she is ready, the female will dig a hole five centimeters deep with her snout and claws in sandy, wet damp soil that is covered with grasses or other plants and which receives sunlight during most of the day. Once finished the female will lay a clutch of five to seven ellipsoidal eggs that hatch within a period of 8 to 10 weeks. As agama agamas are a species with thermoregulated embryos, all male eggs will have a temperature of twenty-nine degrees Celsius, while female eggs will range from twenty-six to twenty-seven degrees Celsius.

History

The Traveling Baboon Show

A pair of rainbow agamas and a mouse witness Uroho's act, but none of them are entertained, and one of the agamas hisses at him rudely. They then run away when Cheezi and Chungu arrive at the scene.
