Chamaeleo johnstoni

Johnston's chameleon or Ruwenzori three-horned chameleon (Trioceros johnstoni, syn. Chamaeleo johnstoni) is a species of chameleon found in forests at altitudes between 1,000 and 2,500 m (3,300 and 8,200 ft) in the Albertine Rift of DR Congo, Burundi, Rwanda and Uganda, but also tolerates semi-urbanized environments as long as some trees and bushes remain.[1]
