World’s smallest chameleon found


You’d think the worlds smallest chameleon would be a little tougher to find, wouldn't you? But alas, it has been spotted by German scientists.

This tiny chameleon, better known as the "Brookesia micra," was recently discovered in Madagascar, just east of Africa. It was one of four new species discovered by the team of scientists. Despite their small stature (they only grow to three centimeters in length at their largest), they only come out at night when they climb up trees. During the day, they hang out under leaves. It’s a good life, being a tiny chameleon.

Experts think that they weren’t always so small and have evolved to be so tiny due to their habitat, which is being threatened by trees being cut down.

Do we smell an action face-off between these guys and the world’s smallest frog? Maybe…
