This Blog is created to educate people in successful keeping of Veiled and Panther chameleons
I always wanted to know one thing. Most of the common chameleons are having a small hole at both sides of thier head, just below the eyes near the joints of jaw bone. I never saw anyone explaining what it is. I thought it was its ears :), but later came to know that chameleon do not have ears. Please enlighten me.look at this.. http://www.treknature.com/gallery/photo134475.htm
Hi, Sajid. old world chameleons (such as veiled, panthers, parsonii, etc) do not have ears.The naming of "common chameleon" is confusing.But, what you have there, scientifically, is not related to old world chameleon.
Please look this pericular examplehttp://www.flickr.com/photos/efeu/3470145673/This photo has a note, please hover your mouse to see them. I would like to know about this if it is not the ear.
Hi Sajid,That is an ear.BUT, it is NOT a chameleon. It is mistakenly named a chameleon.If I am not mistaken, it is an oriental garden lizard (calotes versicolor). genus of calotes.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oriental_garden_lizardOld world chameleons and common chameleons are two different lizards.Veiled chameleon's genus of chamaeleo.http://adcham.com/html/taxonomy/species/chcalyptratus.htmlThe oriental garden lizard and veiled chameleon are two different species.Just like a komodo dragon and a crocodile are two different lizard.
