Veiled chameleon




Squamata > Chameleonidae

Coastal lowlands, foothills,

and highlands

🐛 insects

The veiled chameleon is sometimes called the

"masked chameleon" because of its helmet-like head.

It uses its head to collect blood and cool its body.

It uses its 360-degree moving eyes to scan its surroundings,

then quickly shoots out its long, sticky tongue to hunt insects.

Keep an eye out for the Veiled Chameleon,

the master of hide-and-seek!
