SPRAWL - Oustalet's Chameleon by Carel Brest van Kempen
Subject: Oustalet's Chameleon
Dimensions (inches): 18 x 24
Description: Isolated since the Cretaceous, the island of Madagascar is famous for its unique flora and fauna, much of which has diminished or been extirpated as humans have altered the landscape. One of the few beneficiaries of this change has been Oustalet's Chameleon (Furcifer oustaleti), a species that can exceed 680mm in length, longer than any other member of the family. Long and lean, it's an active species whose tongue can snatch small reptiles, mammals and birds along with large insects. In the trees it moves in typical chameleon fashion, but on the ground it can run quite quickly, in a fashion I've seen in no other species. Incidental species include Humans (Homo sapiens), Madagascan Brown Bat (Neoromicia matroka), Black Kite (Milvus migrans), Chicken (Gallus gallus), Red Fody (Foudia madagascariensis) and Lined Day Gecko (Phelsuma lineatus).
