Native to Yemen and Saudi Arabia, the veiled chameleon is a common reptile species that is popular as a pet. While adults are brightly colored with different stripes, infants are predominantly green in color during their youth.
Veiled chameleons are fairly common in captivity, and make greatpets due to their ability to adapt to many different conditions andhabitats. In fact, in areas like Hawaii and Florida veiledchameleons are considered an invasive species. The assumption isthat they were released accidentally or on purpose by previousowners, and have taken to the specific regions so well that areconsidered overly-successful.
