Madagagascar is home to the worlds biggest Chameleon. Parson’s Chameleon (Calumma parsonii) is considered the joint biggest reaching a total length of up to 695mm. It inhabits mid- and low-altitude rainforests and forest edges, especially along forest streams. In captivity 20-38 eggs are buried 30 cm underground, hatching only after 400-520 days!
The have very long tongues (sometimes longer than their own body length), and it extends out faster than the human eyes can follow. It is a complex arrangement of bone, sinew and muscle, which forms a suction cup at the end covered in this mucus.
It only takes the Chameleon 30/1000 to hit its target!
