Here is a cool piece of news i found 'in the daily mail of all places'
Scientists have discovered a new species of tiny chameleon on a small islet just off the main island of Madagascar.

This particular chameleon is now thought to be one of the smallest reptiles on the planet. Ted Townsend, of San Diego State University, carried out genetic testing on the new species. He said: 'Their size suggests that chameleons might have evolved in Madagascar from small and inconspicuous ancestors, quite unlike the larger and more colourful chameleons most familiar to us today.'


What a beautiful and delicate creature it is, hope you enjoy the pics as much as i did.

Very cool. Reminds me of the bee hummingbird, which has a nest the size of a thimble.
