Caption: Casque head chameleon. Casque head chameleon (Chamaeleo hoehnelii) clambering over a flower. This reptile lives in the highlands of east Africa. The colour of the chameleon's skin alters according to its emotional state, as well as environmental factors such as temperature. Its long sticky tongue enables it to capture insects that are a considerable distance away. The toes of each foot are in two opposed groups and its tail is prehensile (grasping), both adaptions for arboreal life. Photographed in Kenya.
