The integument of juvenile, yearling and adult specimens of the Asian Rock Agama, Laudakia himalayana from the Western Pamir Mountains has been studied. Different degree of callose scale development was recorded in all groups of specimens. There are sexually dimorphic and age differences in their grossform, number and topography. The results are discussed with reference to available ecological and behavioral data concerning agamids and other lacertilian clades.
