Leptein's spiny-tailed lizard (Uromastyx aegyptia lepteini)

A big, strong lizard in threat display. This species, known locally as dhubs or dhabs, were near the top of my target list while in the deserts of Sharjah. Dhubs absolutely love the heat, and are out in the middle of the day enjoying the furnace-like conditions of the Arabian desert, long after all other animals have retreated to the shade.
