The veiled chameleon gets its name from the bony protusion atop its head, which is called a casque. Both males and females sport the fancy headgear, which serves to channel water droplets down into the reptiles’ mouths, a crucial adaptation in their dry habitats.
Solitary tree-dwellers native to Saudi Arabia and Yemen, veiled chameleons—also called cone-headed chameleons—are mostly insectivores, ambushing prey with long, sticky tongues.
Their grasping feet and prehensile tails allow them to hold fast to branches, shrubs, or even backyard plants.
