Description

Rare group of Kinyongia uluguruensis in a private collection. These animals were part of a breeding group imported to the USA from Tanzania in June 2014. The males have serrated rostral blades that can be quite variable in length and orientation. Some individuals have them parallel, while others diverge like the male in the photo. Females lack rostral blades entirely, but both have pronounced dorsal spikes and a distinctive white stripe down each flank. Both sexes feature a dark tan saddle along the dorsal crest that is more prominent on the females against their green background coloration.

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....
