Heavy Breeding

It was over a year ago since the first ISW post about the veiled chameleons (Chamaeleo calyptratus) in Maui. Unfortunately, KPUA AM 670 is now reporting that Hawaiian wildlife officials have found more than 100 of the reptiles, indicating that they have established at least one breeding population. Veiled chameleons have no natural enemies in Hawaii, and commonly include birds and other lizards as part of their diets. Though people often keep them as pets, they have never been legal to import into Hawaii.
