I took this picture in the Toronto Zoo in the African Rainforest exhibit, where the Meller’s chameleon is kept next to its cousin the veiled chameleon. Most of the general chameleon-related factoids described there apply to the Meller’s chameleon as well.

Meller’s chameleons are carnivorous and they will eat insects and small animals that they can overpower.

Meller’s chameleons in the wild are vulnerable to habitat destruction and changes in their environment.

Some people like to keep a Meller’s chameleon as a pet.
