Male Veiled Chameleon yemen by macrojunkie Male Veiled Chameleon yemen by macrojunkie
The Veiled Chameleon (Chamaeleo calyptratus), is a large species of chameleon found in the mountain regions of Yemen and Saudi Arabia. It is also sometimes referred to as the Yemen Chameleon.


A male veiled chameleon, with a characteristically masculine casque. Foot spurs are present, though not clearly visible in this photograph. (Specimen at the Museum of Science, Boston.)The male veiled chameleon is green in color and, depending on mood, this green will range from a bright lime green to a red olive drab. The green base color is marked with stripes and spots of yellow, brown, and blue. Non breeding females and juvenile chameleons are generally a uniform green color with some white markings. Breeding and gravid females are a very dark green with blue and yellow spots. The prominence of these markings is dependent on several factors including health, mood, and temperature of the lizard.

Chameleons are very sensitive. I hope he wasn't too traumatized by this. Animal abuse isn't worth a "good shot".

Good to hear. I was concerned because I had a friend who kept taking her chameleon out and it ended up dying. I have another friend who works in a pet store and says they only act that way when they are very scared or upset.

Glad you didn't do anything to harm him. They are very sweet and cute little creatures.

@OpalMist Thought of me when he saw this.
I love it! It looks like he's just going RARR! I bet he was none too pleased about a camera shoved in his face.
But he's a star now. :giggle:
