Two Other Chameleons


The last few days, we have been getting a bit worried because we could not spot Denty or Peaky, the two biggest chameleons, but only the smaller Scabby and Greenback.

In compensation, I spotted a chameleon on the hibiscus just now, definitely not Denty or Peaky, but possibly the one we last saw on the hibiscus weeks ago. I called this one Humpy, not to be confused with the ill-starred wallsitter Humpty.

Greenback is a bit of a misnomer, because she is an extremely ungreen chameleon, but does sometimes show a few green patches on her back.

Greenback and Humpy make their debuts on this blog:

Greenback showing one or two tiny green patches – or is it my imagination?

Thanks for showing us these two new Chameleons! :-))

I can't see any green patches in this small photo . It's a shame the photos don't have a link to the original sized photos. You miss many details in these smaller photos.

I sometimes upload my original photos to BeyondSpace & then put a link in my blog on here. Trouble is it takes quite a while to upload them to BS to get the URL to copy & paste in my blog on here.

Balcony, strange you should raise the question of "smaller photos" today because I was thinking along the same lines and in fact uploaded over 300 photos to photobucket, just finished an hour ago! There you can see them all full size.

The last 41 pics include all my 11 chameleon photos: try

And try also
which works for me but I can hardly believe it will work for someone else.

I had no problem following your links. Did you see this animated one?

Re my last post of 28th Nov 2010,
The link Is now

Due to reorganisation, the "..../2010g" link is now no longer valid.
