Cuban false chameleons ( Chamaeleolis barbatus) are native to Cuba. Having never been officially allowed for export into the pet trade all of the captive individuals trace their origins back to original zoo stock that was later released into the pet trade. One of the largest species of anole they are one of 5 closely related species (the Chamaeleolis offshoot of the anoles) which can grow to a maximum of around7inches. Although recent research by Losos (2009) suggests that Chamaeleolis are just an offshoot of anoles meaning officially this species is now Anolis barbatus most people still refer to them as being Chamaeleolis. These charming creatures are specialist snail feeders in the wild but will readily accept most forms of livefood in captivity and we have found they thrive on a diet predominantly composed of locusts. Being lazy by nature and disinclined to bite unless threatened they are sociable creatures absolutely packed with character. They are not aggressive but are a defensive species that are not recommended for regular handling, their relative C. barbatus is far more tame and will actually approach their keeper. These are not the most difficult of species to keep but due to their rarity often are only found in specialist collections.
