Earlier views toward Stump-tailed chameleons (genera Brookesia and Rhampholeon) have changed. In nature, these chameleons were found to occur in greater numbers than previously anticipated, due to their small body size and effective use of camouflage, and in captivity, most species proved to adjust adequately to life in the terrarium. The authors provide a wealth of information on the biology, systematics, and captive husbandry of Stump-tailed chameleons, indicating that many species can be bred in captivity by applying aspects of their natural history.
