Mellor’s Giant Chameleons (note the two of them in there – they vary enormously in colouring):-
I love Chameleons. If I won the euromillions lottery and could buy a few slaves one of them would be a herpetologist. I would have a palm house as big as the one in Kew Gardens. In it I would have lots of lizards, snakes and chameleons. I would breed them to return them into the wild. (Ah well, we can all dream). I just adore the way the chameleon’s eyes can move independently, enabling them to see and focus upon two different things at once. And they have such quick tongues and super didactylous feet.
The ones I have seen in zoos are only prone to comparatively minor changes in colouration but this video I found on Sandi’s blog is brilliant – in more ways than one.
