Jackson’s Chameleon (Trioceros jacksonii xantholophus) is best suited to being a visual pet and watching them is captivating. It is amazing to see them move with their rocking gait, as if to mimic the twigs of a tree or bush. Watching them eat and the speed at which their tongue darts from their mouths to catch prey, is astounding. And as with almost any chameleon, they can also change their colors to help with camouflaging and hunting.

This Chameleon, also known as Jackson’s Three-horned Chameleon or Yellow-Crested Jackson’s Chameleon, comes from Africa in the mountains of Kenya. There are three subspecies. This Chameleon Trioceros jacksonii xantholophus is the nominate species. The other two are the Dwarf  Chameleon C. j. merumontanus and the rarely seen Machakos Hills Chameleon (Trioceros jacksonii jacksonii).

Hatchlings are 1-3 months old, well starts are 3.5-7 months old, and juveniles are 7+ months old. The size will vary greatly since the age range is so broad. Whatever is on hand at the time of purchase will be what is shipped.
