The Veiled Chameleon (Chamaeleo calyptratus), is a large species of chameleon found in the mountain regions of Yemen and Saudi Arabia. It is also sometimes referred to as the Yemen Chameleon. Unfortunately as was the case with this dude, many are smuggled into Australia, where most perish. This one was lucky!

I believe they are a rain forest dwelling species, however i could stand corrected. There is very little information available on this species, but i think it speaks for its self as it displays the cross so boldly on its abdomen.
