As their name would suggest, the Southern Tree Agama is a mainly arboreal lizard, coming to the ground only to move from one tree to another and to feed on ground-living insects. They inhabit open savanna landscapes, especially those dominated by thorn and miombo trees, and feed on ants, termites, caterpillars, grasshoppers, beetles, and other invertebrates. Adults grow to between 12 and 15cm long, excluding the tail. Breeding males are very colorful and not nearly as well camouflaged as the females, non-breeding males, and young.
