Rhampholeon Acuminatus

Gonzo, is one of our male Acuminatus Pygmy Chameleons. This species is extremely rare in the United States and it is an honor to be able to work with this species.

Rhampholeon Acuminatus were discovered by Mariaux & Tilbury for the first time in only 2006.

They come from the Morogoro region in the Nguru mountains of Tanzania. Nguru South, Komkore forest above the village Ubili, altitude of 1500-1600 m. The name comes from the Latin acuminatus “acuminare” and means “sharpen” in reference to the numerous sharp spines that can be found on the head and body.

The Rhampholeon Acuminatus have a length of 1.85”-2.25” with the tail being approximately 25-35% of the total length.

Adult animals are recognizable by their large disc-shaped andflattened vertical “nose extension” consisting of a small busy with shed skin flap structure.The helmet is clearly separated from the neck and increases towards the rear.An exaggerated dorsal crest and numerous spines on the body,as well as on the limbs and tail are all characteristics of the Acuminatus.
