Spiny Backed Chameleon

Forgive me if this posts twice. I don't think I submitted it properly the first time.
I was in the reptile store today and they had a nice sized chameleon (about 12 - 14 inches) that they were calling a Spiny Backed Chameleon.
I have never heard of that so I came home and googled it....nothing.
I don't know if they just made up a name or if this is a common name for something or what but I am curious.
It was a great looking specimen. Healthy and alert. It does have rather pronounced spines along it's dorsal ridge.
Just wondering if anyone might know what type of chameleon this is or if there is in fact a spiny backed chameleon.
