Range Description

This chameleon is endemic to the island of Madagascar where it is only known from Tsaratanana in the northwest. It has been reported from 1,000 to 2,250 m asl. (Raxworthy and Nussbaum 1996, Glaw and Vences 2007, Raxworthy et al. 2008). Tsaratanana covers an area of 1,300 km; however, as this species is confined to higher elevations the chameleon's true extent of occurrence is presumably somewhat lower.
