Distribution and Habitat in Hawaii: First introduced by the pet trade in 1972, the Jackson's Chameleon (C. jacksonii xanthalophus) is now well established in Hawaii. While it is most commonly found on the island of Oahu, where it was first introduced, it has recently become established on the Big Island of Hawaii, Maui, Kauai, and Lanai.

Captive Care
A1 Reptiles - Jackson's Chameleon Care Sheet

Chameleons are primarily an African and Madagascan group of arboreal insectivorous lizards. They are found at elevations of five-thousand to eight-thousand feet. Rainfall in these areas average over fifty inches per year. Most chameleons are egg layers but the Jackson chameleons give birth to live young. In 1972 this specie was accidentally introduced into the wild in Hawaii. They are now well established in the Hawaiian islands and large breeding populations now exist there. They are imported to the mainland by the thousands.

Jackson's Chameleon Information

In comparison to other chameleons, Jackson's are calm, placid animals. In the wild individuals live a solitary lifestyle, which is pretty typical for chameleons, regardless of age. This should be taken into consideration when handling your Jackson's. In general any chameleon should not be overly handled, but this can be gauged by the reaction of your individual chameleons.
