Between Intermittent Rains (Part 3)

13 Jan, 2009


Guess what this is.

It's a chameleon.

Chameleons inhabit on the fringe of a forest, ridding themselves of the attention of unwanted animals like eagles and wild cats.

I wish I could rear one just for a short while so that I can take photos of it having its frill erected around the neck, just like a frill-necked lizard. But no such thing is legally allowed here in the Amazon under the present circumstances.

So, please excuse me for not being able to show you a photo of a rare moment of this chameleon's flamboyant performance.
