These chameleons are an attractive and colorful species known for their unique appearance and intriguing behaviors.

Yemen Chameleons are so named because they can be found in the mountains of Yemen, though they also live in parts of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. These reptiles carry the scientific name "Chamaeleo calyptratus", which means they belong to the genus Chamaeleo within the Chamaeleonidae family. The family Chamaeleonidae contains over 150 different species of chameleon ranging in size and color.
Even though these species are all very different in appearance, they share one common feature – their zygodactylous feet. This simply means their toes are arranged in such a way that the first and fourth face backward while the middle two face forward. This arrangement is also found in birds. Like most chameleon species, the veiled chameleon is arboreal, which means they spend the majority of their life in trees. Two of the most identifiable of the veiled chameleon, and of chameleons in general, are their swivel eyes and long tongue.
The chameleon’s eyes protrude from their head forming a round globe shape and are able to move independently of each other enabling the chameleon to see in front and behind itself at all times, therefore being able to keep an eye out for predators.
An interesting fact regarding veiled chameleons is they display a large degree of ual dimorphism, meaning there are clear visible differences between the male and female of the same species. Whilst female Yemen chameleons are usually uniformly green in color, males are much more brightly colored. This uniform coloring also applies to baby and juvenile veiled chameleons.
The Yemen Chameleon and the Veiled Chameleon is a large species that is becoming increasingly popular as a pet.
These lizards are bright green in color with splotches, spots and stripes of various colors all over the body. The name Veiled Chameleon comes from the rigid veil that sits on top of the head. The official name for this species, Yemen Chameleon, was given in reference to the chameleon’s natural habitat in the mountainous regions of Yemen.
