This small sized chameleon reaches an average size of 11-14cm (4.5-5.5 inches) but can grow to 16cm (6.5 inch). The tail is normally as long as the body. Colour can vary depending on the region they originate from. Usually shades of brown, grey and sometimes almost black even when unstressed. Two pale side stripes run from the eyes to the base of the tail. Three or four large horizontal black, white and grey blotches may be present in the middle of the flanks.
They tend to prefer living in acacia scrubland areas, as well as savannah grasslands that sit anywhere from 1000 to 3000 meters above sea level.
The Side Stripe Chameleon gives live birth from 6 up to 25 young. They can also produce two different broods in the oviducts.
