Barely an inch long from nose to tail, it’s hardly surprising that this tiny animal is rarely spotted.
For this miniscule chameleon is so small that it can sit on a human thumbnail with room to spare.
The miniature creature, from the Brookesia genus, was spotted on an expedition in Amber Mountain Park, Madagascar, by British wildlife photographer Will Burrard-Lucas.
Mr Burrard-Lucas and his brother Matt had just settled down for lunch during when their eagle-eyed guide spotted the creature.
Although it has a large landmass, it is divided into many small ecosystems, making it difficult for a large species, and large predators, to thrive there.
