We document populations of the introduced African rainbow lizard (Agama agama africana) in Homestead, Miami-Dade County; Hollywood, Broward County; Palm City, Martin County; Punta Gorda, Charlotte County; and Sanford, Seminole County. The Homestead and Punta Gorda populations have been established for over 10 yr and have expanded at least 0.5 km from the point of introduction. The Palm City population has been established since 1999 and the Sanford population since 2000. All agamas were… 
Studies on African Agama IV : First record of Agama agama ( Sauria : Agamidae ) from Madagascar and identity of the alien population on Grande Comore Island
Apart from the New World, it is naturally lacking only in the Malagasy subregion of the Afrotropical region (Wermuth 1967; Moody, 1980). So far, there are only two species of agamids recorded that
Taxonomic status of the reptile genus Procolophon from the Gondwanan Triassic
TLDR
It is found that P. pricei and P. brasiliensis, two species described from Brazil, fit within the pattern of ontogenetic variation of the type species P. trigoniceps, and they are here considered junior synonyms.
Life in the suburbs: artificial heat source selection for nocturnal thermoregulation in a diurnally active tropical lizard
TLDR
This paper describes retreat site selection, movements and aspects of the thermal ecology of the African lizard Agama agama in urban environments of West Africa and finds that individuals that took advantage of the heat sources travelled further each day to and from diurnal activity areas than individuals that spent the night high on walls but not next to heat panels.
