Yemen Chameleon



Nothing quite as cool as a chameleon, especially when voiced by  Johnny Depp  in the upcoming film Rango.

This is a Chamaeleo calyptratus, also known as a veiled chameleon. Its favorite food is locusts, and it drinks water that has pooled on leaves. Yemen Chameleons are often kept as pets because, relative to other chameleon species, they can survive easily in captivity. Click images for an beautifully detailed view.
