Master of Disguise

In the above photograph is a Flap-neck Chameleon.

These creatures are very hard to spot, however, using our spotlights we can find them at night – they appear as a yellowish colour in the light. Their main prey is insects and they catch them using their long sticky tongues. When the Flap-necked Chameleon is provoked or threatened it hisses and puffs up it throat “flap” making him appear larger and more dangerous!

The latest cold front has proven that it can rain here in winter! This morning was cold and wet, with a total of 6milimeters falling since late last night.
