Safari LTD | Incredible Creatures ~ VEILED CHAMELEON
In areas like Hawaii and Florida, veiled chameleons are considered an invasive species. Researchers believe they were released accidentally or on purpose by previous owners. As a result, they have damaged the livelihood of many endemic species, either by out competing them or by praying upon them. In fact, veiled chameleons are believed to have single-handedly driven some species to become classified as near threatened.
