A Myth About Yemen Chameleons Unleashed: CLIMATE


Very often, people are mistaken to consider Yemen chameleons to be inhabitants of desert regions with hot and dry climate.

Many care sheets spread also this nonsense.


In fact, they inhabit high mountain valleys from 1000 m a.s.l. up with rather mild climate!!! 

There is NO need to Bake them with heat lamps to over 40'C! 

They live the most time of the year in moderate temperatures with night drops deep under 20'C and fog/clouds lasting till 10AM almost every day See the climate chart of a week in July, natural biotopes and foggy mornings...
