Hello Again

It’s been a bit of a whirlwind here the past few days, so you’ll have to forgive me if my next few posts are a little short on prose.

This chameleon is relatively young (less than a year old), and apparently when it was very little it stayed bright green all the time, but as it ages it not only gains the ability to change color but develops the darker color bands of an adult.

I’m not sure if you can see any of that from these pictures, though, and to be honest I wasn’t thinking about any of that when I took them—I’m just fascinated by those independently moving eyes and those very unusual hands.

{A note: I do write all text and take all pictures. Please do not reproduce either without my permission.}

The first photo, especially, makes the little guy look like an ancient idol.

I agree with Anca. SO much presence in this animal! Just fascinating. Thanks for sharing! =)

I met a woman in California that raises chameleons. Apparently there is a demand for them there with all the zoos and such.
