Flap-necked chameleon
The flap-necked chameleon (Chamaeleo dilepis) owes its name to the movable flaps on its neck. When threatened, they can be raised from the head and angled at 90 degrees. This species is well spread in sub-Saharan Africa and can usually be found in trees and bushes.

Its main hunting weapon is its extensile tongue, coated with a sticky mucus.
