Those are spectacular male colors. They seem to be mirrored in North America by members of the Sceloporus formosus group - bright blue and green males and gray females with transverse markings, and I suppose also with African Agama agama.

Thanks, John!

Plan your trip to Vietnam, book this hotel http://www.booking.com/hotel/vn/cat-tien-xanh.html and enjoy 2 Calotes species just around your bungalow :) as well as skinks, frogs and snakes :)
