Description - Jackson's chameleons are sometimes called three-horned chameleons because males possess three brown horns: one on the nose and one above each superior orbital ridge above the eyes. The females generally have no horns, The coloring is usually bright green, with some individual animals having traces of blue and yellow, but like all chameleons, they change color quickly depending on mood, health, and temperature.These are small to medium-sized chameleons. They have a saw-tooth shaped dorsal ridge and no gular crest. They attain sexual maturity after five months. The lifespan is variable, with males generally living longer than females.
