Description Trioceros jacksonii - Jackson's chameleon or Jackson's three-horned chameleon (Trioceros jacksonii), is an African chameleon belonging to the chameleon family (Chamaeleonidae).Its generic name (trioceros) is derived from the Greek - (tri-) meaning 'three' and (kras) meaning 'horns'. This is in reference to the three horns found on the heads of males. Its specific name is a Latinized form of English explorer and ornithologist Frederick John Jackson's last name, who was serving as the first Governor of Kenya at the time. The English word chameleon (also chamaeleon) derives from Latin chamaele, a borrowing of the Ancient Greek (khamailn), a compound of (khama) 'on the ground' and (ln) 'lion'. The Greek word is a calque translating the Akkadian n qaqqari, 'ground lion'.Jackson's chameleon gives birth to live offspring; eight to 30 live young are born after a five- to six-month gestation. They are sometimes called three-horned chameleons because males possess three brown horns: one on the nose (the rostral horn) and one above each superior orbital ridge above the eyes (preocular horns), somewhat reminiscent of the ceratopsid dinosaur genus Triceratops. The females generally have no horns, or traces of the rostral horn (in the subspecies T. j. jacksonii and T. j. merumontanus). The colouring is usually bright green, with some individual animals having traces of blue and yellow, but like all chameleons, they change colour quickly depending on mood, health, and temperature.Jackson's chameleons are a popular pet that can escape the cage and establish feral populations in Hawaii. They are bright emerald green fading to a yellowish colour on their undersides. Males are generally 10-12 inches long with a long, prehensile tail accounting for half of their length and with three horns protruding from their forehead. Females are generally a little shorter and never grow horns. Jackson's chameleons are solitary creatures which spend most
