  1. very very nice shot Ferdy with nice colors, but in my opinion this is a Calumma parsonii parsonii. I can tell that by the two overgrowth on his nose, this chameleon is a common species in Ranomafana if you get lower in altitude Posted 9 months ago

The Parson's chameleon is a very large species of chameleon that is endemic to isolated pockets of humid primary forest in eastern and northern Madagascar. It is listed on CITES Appendix II, meaning that trade in this species is regulated. As with the majority of chameleon species from Madagascar, it is illegal to import Parson's chameleons from their native country.
