Interesting Beetles Emerging with rains.

Some great insects have been emerging recently with the beginning of our rains. This is a long-horned beetle that is likely a borer as an immature. I suspect its host is an Acacia species:

The following is a Weevil I beleive (but its shape is also reminiscent of a Tenebrionid Beetle) . There are hundreds around these days

Odd Agama Lizard

We have been encountering the following Agama lizard on many of our walks around Tumaren. His colour is not right for a Red-Headed Agama and yet there is no other Agama for the area in the book that fills his description. The Mwanza Flat Headed Agama from the Mara and south is the only Agama that resembles it. Ideas???
