The smallest chameleon in the world

Posted on by | No Comments Yet

This little creature could’ve slotted straight into the Madagasca film. Alas, at a mere 29mm long it may have been too tiny…but this is the brookesia micra, the smallest chameleon in the world. It’s suggested that this type of miniaturization called island dwarfism is common in island populations and may occur due to limited resources and pressure to reproduce more rapidly.
