Pygmy Chameleon

From the Flickr description:

    After Farl’s gorgeous shot of the little Brookesia in Madagascar, I thought I’d share an old shot I have one of one of my little ones.
    It’s not the same, taking pictures in the backyard… but I’ve had these little guys as pets for years… (Farl, it’s more a geeky thing to know what I do ;-) ).
    Anyways, this is a Rhampholeon brevicaudatus one of the dwarf chameleons from the main African continent. It’s about 3/4 full grown, and perched on my finger.

Crudely Concealed Chameleon

Perhaps the title is misleading, as it’s most likely not trying to hide, but considering the chameleon is popularly known as a lizard that changes its colors for camouflage, these colors seem rather wild.
