Description

The chameleon has numerous small spines on the back (Dorsal crest) and the tail. Also the spines are evident on the chin and throat (Gular crest). There are about 8 down facing triangular slightly black patterns on the back and the tail of the chameleon. Based on rough visual estimates, i assume the chameleon is about 10cm - 15cm in length (Both body & tail). Tree species where the chameleon was "perched" on is Acacia abyssinica

Description from Wikipedia

Chameleons (family Chamaeleonidae) are a distinctive and highly specialized clade of lizards. The approximately 160 species of chameleon come in a range of colors, including pink, blue, red, orange, turquoise, yellow, and green. They are distinguished by their zygodactylous feet; their separately mobile, stereoscopic eyes; their very long, highly modified, rapidly extrudable tongues; their swaying gait; and crests or horns on their distinctively shaped heads. Some species can change color, and many have a prehensile tail....
