In all of their trips to South Florida Coyote and the crew have seen their fair share of amazing creatures. Everything from Alligators and Crocodiles to invasive Pythons and Knight Anoles have crossed their paths, but tonight they find something extremely rare - an invasive but very WILD Veiled Chameleon!
Get ready to meet one very cool color shifter!
*Although Veiled Chameleons are native to the Arabian Peninsula they have established breeding populations in South Florida in recent years due to favorable climate conditions and an abundance of specimens released from the exotic pet trade. The Chameleon discovered in this video was not released back into the wild and was instead given to an educational/research group.
