Postby stan maddams » Thu May 23, 2013 6:24 pm

Just returned from a great week in Turkey and would appreciate ID on these lizards

The first two I am pretty sure are starred agama, the third I am thinking snake eyed but the fourth not sure at all. Thanks for your hepl

Thank you very much Jurgen

My original thought was that 4 may be a skink as it was very smooth but then was not sure about the markings

Hi Daniel

We were staying at Marmaris, the snake eye was at some waste ground near where we were staying, the agamas on the road leading to Koycegiz and the skink on the peninsular road leading to Knidos

We saw the agamas more than anything else so ended up with quite a few different poses. Here are a few more for interest
