The sharp-nosed chameleon (Kinyongia oxyrhina) is a chameleon native to the Uluguru and Uzungwe Mountains of Tanzania.[1] Its length averages 16 cm (6.5 in). Females are smaller than males, and have smaller helmet protrusions. They are usually coloured white, gray, brown and ochre. Males have bluish horns.[citation needed]
