Kinyongia tavetana (common names: Kilimanjaro two-horned chameleon, Dwarf Fischer's chameleon) is a chameleon in the genus Kinyongia. It is native to southern Kenya and northern Tanzania. Its type locality is Mount Kilimanjaro,[1] but it is also known from Chyulu Hills and Mount Meru to the Pare Mountains.[2] Until 2008, it was widely confused with K. fischeri, but the ranges of the two species do not overlap.[2] The species' length averages 9.5 inches, and it is usually brown, green and grey. Males have two "saw blade" flattened false horns, while the females lack these distinctive feature.[citation needed] References[edit]
