Also known as the Johnston's Chameleon. A big chameleon up to 30cm length. Males have the characteristic three horns the female does not. Colouration is highly variable but usually mainly green with splotches of bright yellow.
Here found on the edge of the Biwindi Impenetrable National Park in western Uganda in mixed forest. At the limit of its altitude range approx. 2400m.
Endemic to the Albertine Rift area in Africa this species has quite a limited range. However it seems to be doing ok in the areas I saw it due mostly to the protected areas where logging has been stopped to help preserve the Mountain Gorilla habitat.
