By Daniel VIK

Abstract

In recent years, it is becoming a very popular breed of so-called dwarf chameleons ( Brookesia genera , Rhampholeon and Rieppeleon ), especially for their size and also very interesting look that is the exact opposite of big colorful chameleons ( genus Furcifer ) . The most common species from these dwarfs chameleons is Rhampholeon brevicaudatus A major challenge for most breeders , however, the sex determination in these dwarf chameleons . This work aims to bring the issue of sexual dimorphism in these dwarf chameleons. Sexual dimorphism in these chameleon show to a longer and wider tail males due reproduction organs in hemipenes pockets. These hemipenes pockets are clearly visible. Among other differences identified are longer, wider and taller head of males and long bones of the limbs, as humerus and femur of males
