Bradypodion Fischeri Multituberculatum: Exploring the Unique Features of the Standard Fischer’s Chameleon

Bradypodion Fischeri Multituberculatum, also known as the Standard Fischer’s Chameleon or the Western Usambara Two Horned chameleon, is a chameleon species endemic to the Usambara mountains in Tanzania. This species has a small casque, a dorsal crest with uneven conical scales that reach up to the tail. Like other Kinyongia species, it has horns or protrusions growing from its nose. The males can grow up to 9.5 inches in length, and females can grow up to 7.5 inches. Both genders have a greenish base color, and the males can have yellow, white, bright green, and even maroon patches on the sides of the body. The males have hemipenal bulges that differentiate them from females aside from their size. Males are also more colorful[2][3].

This species is also known as the Usambara Two-horned chameleon and its scientific name has been changed to Kinyongia multituberculata. All Bradypodion Fischeri are listed in CITES Appendix II, so the importation of this species is closely monitored[2][3].

In terms of care, it’s important to provide a well-ventilated terrarium or screened enclosure that’s at least 16 x 16 x 30 inches. The habitat should include rocks and real or artificial branches purchased from a store to elevate the chameleon, and the bottom of the habitat should be lined with reptile carpet, coconut fiber, or reptile bark. The chameleon’s habitat should also include an automatic fogger, mister, or drip system, and the humidity level should be between 65% and 80%. In terms of diet, chameleons should be fed crickets, mealworms, super worms, wax worms, and wax moths. It’s important to dust insects with a calcium supplement twice a week and provide adequate water intake through a drip system or by misting the enclosure at least twice daily[5].

In conclusion, Bradypodion Fischeri Multituberculatum is an intriguing and worthwhile species of chameleon. Proper care and attention to its unique features can make it a fascinating and rewarding pet for those interested in the world of chameleons.
