[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Leaving early in the morning Mopani camp there was a lot af rain and just out of the camp this chameleon crossed over the road, and as you know you all animals have priority so also this little fellow.

I donnot know the exact ID because there are so many kinds of chameleons.
More than 160 species of Chameleons are known, arranged in nine genera. The main distribution of Chameleons is in Africa and Madagascar, and other tropical regions, although some species are also found in parts of southern Europe and Asia. There are introduced, feral populations of veiled and Jackson's chameleons in Hawaii and isolated pockets of feral Jackson's chameleons have been reported in California and Florida.

Chameleons inhabit all kinds of tropical and montane rain forests, savannas and sometimes semi-deserts and steppes. They are mostly arboreal and are often found in trees or occasionally on smaller bushes. Some smaller species live on the ground under foliage.

Hope you like it and thanks for looking

Hello Viv,
What a unique capture of this Chamelon walking across the wet road! I don't think he likes getting his feet wet! :-) Very well observed and your capture shows details and colours very well. Lovley!
Many thanks and regards, Ulla
