My hobby is studing camaleons, in all its aspects (distribution, particular characteristics, habits, Naturalenvironment, etc. I had already many camaleons and even made breeding of camaleons).
I collect thousands of cameleon pictures with their scientific names.

I'm pretty sure that the cameleon in your page is a Bradypodion hoehnelii, not a chamaeleo chamaeleon.

Note: chamaeleo chamaeleon is one of the species which I know better and have studied it for almost 25 years in contact with real specimes - Portugal, Algarve.

Best regards.
Rui Bento.
