Jackson's Chameleon Video Stock Footage

Jackson's chameleons are sometimes called three-horned chameleons because males possess three brown horns: one on the nose (the rostral horn) and one above each superior orbital ridge above the eyes (preocular horns), somewhat reminiscent of the ceratopsid dinosaur genus Triceratops. The females generally have no horns, or instead have traces of the rostral horn (in the subspecies T. j. jacksonii and Tg traces of blue and yellow, but like all chameleons, they change color quickly depending on mood, health, and temperature. These are small to medium-sized chameleons. Adult males reach a total length (including tail) of up to 38 cm (15 in) and females up to 25 cm (10 in), but more typical lengths are 15 to 25 cm (6 to 10 in). They have a saw-tooth shaped dorsal ridge and no gular crest. They attain sexual maturity after five months. The lifespan is variable, with males generally living longer than females. The largest subspecies of Jackson's chameleon is T. j. xantholophus, which has been captively bred since the 1980s. Learn more about Jackson's Chameleon
