Agama agama confusion

Hello,
I have been looking to get a Red Headed Agama, however I have read and seen many contradicting things about this Species . I know the males can be extremely colorful, but I have only seen a few photos like that. Most of what I see, especially on reptile dealers sites is a male with a Red Head and tail and black body. Or I see a Male with a red head, blue body, and turquoise tail. Are theses the same species and some pics are of the male while basking and the other is him while sleeping or stressed. Or are they two different species but one is being missed labeled?
Thank you

Those that are brightly colored are usually photographed in the wild under perfect conditions. They will not retain those colors while in a dealers care. Once you get them home and keep them under good lighting and proper temps, they will color-up more. However, they will never be as colorful as when they are kept in natural sunlight.

Ok, thanks. Just got a male and a female. Putting them in a 48X36X18" terrarium with some live grasses and succulents. I have a 160watt Exo Terra Solar Glo Mercury a Vapor bulb and and an Exo Terra Intense Basking a Bulb. I'm hoping that since the coloring can also be a mating act, he will brighten up to impress the female
