:::I have a chameleon from the hills just north of Nairobi Kenya. It has about a 4.5 inch body length (not including tail) Does not have horns or high crown on head. I do have clear digital Pics but do not know how to attach them to this file. It often has a white stripe along both sides of his gut from just behind fore leg to almost the hind leg. A white stripe also forms along the line of his mouth. When aggravated he puffs up with bright red under lower jaw area. I can email pictures to anyone who can help with identification.
:::Thanks for any help.

::It is not a panther chameleon (Furcifer pardalis). From the description i would say possibly Br. excubitor. Is it from around Mt. Kenya? Email me a photo at parsonii_hoehnelii@hotmail.com and I'll positively identify it for you.

:Chris, you should be getting the photos to your email add. Thanks for any help. I belive he is from Ngong Hills area.

i got the pics. That is a female Chamaeleo (Chamaeleo) dilepis roperi. Its a nice specimen at that. Very nice red coloration in the throat grooves of the gular pouch. There are a number of caresheets available for them. Go to my site, linked below and www.adcham.com for two.
