Indian Chameleon

Chamaeleo zeylanicus


I found this lovely creature at Sabridham, Saputara, Gujarat on 29th June. I was really amazed looking at its walking style and vibrant colors. Usually Chameleons crawl, but this was walking like humans. It was seriously amazing watch! Thanks to god for a lovely sighting.

Has any one ever seen its walk? I saw it for good 15 minutes. Its walk is more like human than crawling of Chameleon in general..isnt it?

Thanks friends. It was certainly nice spotting to me. I found it rare as I saw 1st time. Then read that its common to India. Lucky me to capture such vibrant colors.
