I love looking at the veiled chameleon when I go in pet smart to get fish supplies. They are listed as advanced care level though. Are they hard to take care of? Are they a good first reptile? I don't have room for anymore tanks right now, but if I did ever decide to get a reptile that would probably be what I would want. I'm 37, so I'm an adult. I don't always trust the pet smart care ratings. They list hatchet fish as intermediate skill level, but they aren't any harder to take care of than serpae tetras (I have both). I'm guessing they get the intermediate rating though because they are jumpers and you probably can't trust a 5 year old to remember to put the lid back on after feeding the fish.
