From Library Journal:

Following chapters on the chameleon's anatomy, classification, sensory system, and predatory threats, Martin highlights this lizard's uniqueness by presenting the life histories of four dissimilar species. These chameleons were selected for the different specialized traits that they exhibit in order to adapt to the widely diverse conditions found in the rainforest, deserts, and mountains of Africa. This book is profusely illustrated and contains an extensive appendix listing the morphological features of all known chameleon species. A hobbyist himself, Martin presents these reptiles to the lay and YA reader with enthusiasm and compassion. A strong conservation message addresses the plight of captive animals and discourages the keeping of chameleons as pets. Recommended for larger collections.
