Veiled Yemen Chameleon

Chamaeleo calyptratus


Profile notes:

Veiled chameleons are native to Yemen and southern Saudi Arabia, and reside in an amazing variety of different habitats. As such, this species is tolerant of temperature and humidity extremes, which contributes to its hardiness as a captive.

 

First and foremost, purchase only captive born veiled chameleons. Imported chameleons should be avoided at all costs. Imports usually carry a large parasite load, and are dehydrated and stressed from the importation process. The veiled chameleon is an impressive and challenging reptile to keep. Although the veiled chameleon is among the hardiest of its genus, it still requires rather specialized care.

 

Anyone who is considering keeping veiled or other chameleons should seek out and read as much of the available literature as possible before purchasing the animal, do not purchase and then attempt to learn all that is required to keep these animals successfully. Learning what is required beforehand will reduce stress on both the keeper and the kept.
