Chameleons in Malta

Photographic Chameleons in Malta! Photographic Workshop for individuals or groups in Malta

Question: “Are there Chameleons in Malta?” 
Answer: “Yes”

The Mediterranean Chameleon (Chamaeleo chamaeleon) is not an indigenous species to the Maltese Islands but was introduced in the 19th century from North Africa.  It is now found all over Malta and also on its sister island Gozo.

Chameleons in Malta can grow up to 30 cm and varies in colour from a pale sand colour to almost black, often with darker or lighter markings on its side. Besides changing colour, it puffs up its body and opens its mouth wide to appear larger and more fierce.

It is usually a rather slow species and once spotted we normally enjoy quite some time photographing it. Like with all wildlife some individuals are more confident than others and don’t mind us clicking away, other individuals are more vary and might try to crawl back into thick bushes to hide.

The Chameleons are cold blooded animals and love to bask in the sun to heat up to become more mobile.  During the day the best time to find them is therefore in the middle of the day on a sunny but not windy day. So don’t forget to bring water and protective sun lotion.
