Canvas Chameleons New Addition Rhampholeon Acuminatus

We are extremely excited to announce the new addition of several Rhampholeon Acuminatus Pygmy Chameleon to our family. In the United States, the R. Acuminatus Pygmy is extremely rare and virtually impossible to find a captive bred chameleon. Our goal is to change this problem and hopefully be able to provide captive bred R. Acuminatus in the United States.

Four chameleon species discovered in Mozambique’s ‘sky islands’

Expeditions to northern Mozambique’s remote mountains have uncovered a wealth of new species, including four pygmy chameleons.

Researchers have discovered four new pygmy chameleon species in Mozambique, which have now been described and published in a paper by Branch, Tolley & Bayliss in the scientific journal Zootaxa.

The chameleons were discovered by researchers who were assessing the plant and animal diversity of Mozambique’s ‘sky islands’ – isolated mountains found in the north of the country.
