There is a lot of species of agama, get pictures if you can, will help with identification : victory:
Coloured throats and stomachs seems like two males to me?

Either Trapelus savignii or T.mutabilis. If the ventral scales are smooth it's mutabilis if they are keeled/spiky it's savignii. Try and get a dorsal picture up to show the markings?

Dark one looks like a T.savignii, can't really comment on the lighter individual as it's hiding under the first :) Can I have details on the care? Size, temps, humidity, diet etc as the darker individual looks underweight and possibly dehydrated?

i gotta agree with seamus there my original though mutabilis but seeing the bigger picture im not so sure. kept exactly the same anyway lol but yeah looks very de-hydrated and under weight but it dosnt help that they would of been wild caught so you will need fecials done aswell as iv got a feeling they will be riddled. but try get them hydrated again :)
