L is for Lounging Lizard

Ornate Dabb Lizard

This colorful lizard is an Ornate Dabb Lizard, Uromastyx ornata, and in Egypt, is found only in the rocky wadis of South Sinai. And while he may look like he is simply lounging in the hot sun, he is quite alert and on the look-out, surveying his territory. Learn more about this spiny-tailed lizard on Arkive.org.
