[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Veiled Chameleon
Chamaeleo calyptratus

They have eyes that can move independently and look in two directions at once, as well as swivel nearly 180 degrees. They are therefore able to look in any direction, and even follow moving objects, without turning their heads or shifting body position. When a prey animal is spotted, both eyes will focus on the insect in order to perceive depth.

These are amazing creatures and you did a fantastic job showing the incredible profile these odd creatures display. Their casque really sets them apart from the other chameleon species. :)
