Chameleon species worldwide

Internationaler Chamäleontag

Do you know how many chameleons there are in the world? There are currently exactly 228 species! Most of them are found in Africa, over 40% of them only on the island of Madagascar. But there are also chameleons in southern Spain, Italy, Turkey and India. They range from brightly coloured to small and brown, from tiny to huge. An incredible variety makes this group of reptiles unique. And not all species have been described yet!

Here is a list of all currently known chameleon species, each with a link to the ReptileDatabase for further information:
