Conservation Status


Endanger =====>

Scientific name:
Chamaeleo Dilepis

English name:
Flap-necked Chameleon

Japanese name:





It is a chameleon inhabiting all over Africa south of Ethiopia and Congo.

It has a larger flap than other chameleon chameleons.

In addition, it is very resistant to changing an environment, so easy to keep.

How to identify between similar species

It can be distinguished from other Chamaeleo by the size of the flap.

Similar species are Chamaeleo Gracilis and Chamaeleo Laevigatus


this chameleon lives everywhere in Tanzania.

I found it even in the dry area, Mtwara, so I think you can find it if you go to the farm at any region.

iNaturalist has many observation records, so please refer to it.

Where to find

Like other chameleons, it seems that they are often on tree branches about 1 to 3 meters above the surface.

May also be on hedges or crop stalks.
