Furcifer verrucosus Warty Chameleon
Berenty Reserve, Toliara province, MadagascarOctober 16, 1996
Warty Chameleon (Furcifer verrucosus)
This spiky chameleon was found by flashlight at night. The local guide considered it a serious biting threat, which is why it's on my hand and not his. I couldn't imagine that a chameleon could be a serious biting threat, but on the other hand the local guides have seen a lot more chameleons than I have.
