It was probably Chamaeleo chamaeleon, aka European or Mediterranean chameleon. They live in Spain and Portugal.

C. chamaeleon is the first species of chameleon I hatched. It is found in Portugal and Spain but is also found in North Africa...

BelgiumLizard will become famous soon enough
You can also find in Greece, Chamaeleo africanus.
Two years ago there was a project that was supported by DGHT Chamaleons.

Best regards

There's quite a bit of information about how I kept them in the profile I did on ADCHAM (those were my chameleons)...
http://www.adcham.com/html/taxonomy/...hamaeleon.html

I'll post some other information later.
