Lizards

 

One animal that does appreciate the heat is this young Oertzeni's lizard with its brightly coloured tail. It loses this marking as an adult, but this one seemed very interested in a dead bee lying nearby.

Anatololacerta oertzeni.

Another common lizard is this starred agama (Laudakia stelio) enjoying the early morning sun.
