Setaro’s Dwarf Chameleon  – Bradypodion setaroi

Size:
A medium sized chameleon reaching around 130mm
Colour:
A greyish brown with small patches of green along with orange sometimes light grey or pale blue along its sides and may have irregular reddish tubercles which extend down onto the tail.
Habitat:
Favouring trees, bushes and particularly vines amongst coastal dunes forest as well as the forest fringes.
Field Notes:
One of only the few dwarf chameleon species that is found outside of South Africa, as it extends northwards and into Mozambique. Although favouring coastal dune forest, they do not tend to be phased by artificially planted suburban gardens and have been recorded on palm trees and even sleeping on wire mesh fences. They may get translocated from time to time by nursery plants from many of the indigenous plant nurseries found in Zululand and have been recorded in the west of Durban.
