Trioceros Laterispinis

The spiny-flanked chameleon (also known as the spiny-sided chameleon), Trioceros laterispinis, is a species of chameleon endemic to the United Republic of Tanzania, East Africa. It was first described in 1932 by Arthur Loveridge.

Trioceros laterispinis is only found in one mountain range, the Udzungwa Mountains, part of the Eastern Arc Mountains in the United Republic of Tanzania, East Africa. The type locality is Kigogo, Udzungwa Mountains, Tanzania, and another is Kibau Iyaya in the southwestern Udzungwa Mountains. It is currently found mostly in the vicinity of Mufindi and Kigogo, but its range covers a total area of 11,529 km2 (4,451 sq mi). Its habitat is forests and dense woodland and it seems to have a preference for shrubs and small understorey trees rather than towering giants. This species gives birth to live young.
