The common chameleon or Mediterranean chameleon (Chamaeleo chamaeleon), together with the African chameleon, Chamaeleo africanus, is one of only two extant species of Chamaleonidae with a range that extends into Europe. The common chameleon like others of its family enjoys an arboreal habitat, scrambling about in trees and bushes with feet that have four toes, two on each side for grasping branches. It also uses its prehensile tail to maintain balance and stability.
