You can identify the male Jackson’s chameleon with its three-horned head. The females have none. Being a chameleon it has a typical long retractable tongue and a coiled tail. Normally green, they can change body colour for camouflage. They live on trees of woodlands and forests catching insects. Unlike most chameleons they give birth to young ones.
