I also say this. A bearded dragon is much better about being tame and really enjoy feeling the warmth of your hand. They are good about handling and super chill reptiles. Also, they live longer than chameleons! You get a chameleon because it's beautiful, not because you want to make it handleable. That's like getting a dog because you want to teach it to purr: dogs are great at being dogs, but they aren't cats. Chameleons are great at being chameleons--beautiful, exotic, impressive animals..but they aren't handleable! The most important thing to a chameleon is not being seen--be it during hunting or hiding. They have that ability to sit so still, or imitate the leaves. Their camouflage is excellent. They even catch bugs in perfect stillness from afar. Forcing it to be handled breaks through all of that evolution and it's unnatural. Just makes him think he's about to die and get eaten!
