Carpet Chameleons, also called 'Jewelled chameleons' are one of the most stunning chameleons from Madagascar. Similar to their larger cousins in terms of care (the panther chameleon) they only reach an adult size of approximately 18cm (7in). They have a very large geographic range across almost all of Madagascar (excluding the extreme north), both males and females express a wide range of colours but unusually for a chameleon the females are arguably more colourful than the males.
