Mountain Dragons is a photographic account of a project to investigate chameleon species diversity across the central and western highlands of Kenya. The mountains of East Africa are fascinating places, beautiful landscapes covered in rainforest, bamboo and afroalpine moorlans. Despite being on the equator the climate can be very harsh with sub-zero temperatures and it is in these unusual environments that a unique chameleon fauna has evolved. The author collaborated closely with staff from the National Museums of Kenya to extensively survey the mountains of the central and western highlands of Kenya to document the distribution of chameleons and collect specimens to investigate morphological and genetic variation within two widespread species, Trioceros jacksonii and Trioceros hoehnelii.
