George McPinchy

Animal Category: 
Common Name: 
Veiled / Yemens Chameleon
Scientific Name: 
Chamaeleo calyptratus

 George McPinchy earned his second name by holding on really tight. George is a very friendly Chameleon that enjoys exploring and eating lots of yummy locust, cockroaches and crickets. When George was just a few weeks old, he had a chunk bitten off his back by a sibling. His casque is a bit deformed which we believe he may have done by rubbing against a heat bulb before he came to live with us. His favourite place to be is on top of people’s head. He likes to hold on tightly to their hair and look around.
