Chameleons are a type of lizard that has the ability to change the color of their skin with the temperature, light, and the chameleon's emotional level. They become paler when excited, afraid, or in the dark or cold; they become darker when angry or in hot temperatures or in bright light.

Anatomy: Chameleons have a long, prehensile tail and a helmet-like casque on the head. They have a tremendously long, sticky tongue that is longer than their body! Veiled Chameleons range from 1.3 to 2 feet (40-60 cm) long.

Diet: Veiled chameleons are insectivores (they eat insects). They catch their prey using their long, sticky tongue. The end of the tongue is wider than the base.

Habitat: Veiled chameleons are native to deserts of Yemen and southern Saudi Arabia. They are well adapted to extreme temperatures and scarce water. They are now found all over the world as pets.

Reproduction: Female Veiled chameleons lay white, oval, tough-skinned eggs, which are buried in warm sand until they hatch.

Classification: Class Reptilia (reptiles), Order Squamata (lizards and snakes), Family Chamaeleontidae (chameleons), Genus Chamaeleo, Species calyptorarus.
