An example of wildlife in the ancient ruins of Lycia is the rock agama, an up to 35 cm long agamid lizards , which is found in Turkey, Greece, Southwest Asia, and Northeast Africa. Like many agamids, they can change color to express their moods. They bask on stone walls, rocks, and trees. They are usually found in rocky habitats, and are quite shy, being very ready to dive into cracks to hide from potential predators.
