Ever heared of Chameleons? Want to see them in their Natural Habitat? Fly from New York or Washington DC to Antananarivo International Airport in Madgascar.
Nearly half the world's 103-plus known chameleon species live in Madagascar. These unique reptiles are a study in interesting adaptations, from their pincer-shaped feet and independently movable eyes to their extremely long tongues, which can be more than twice the length of their bodies. They also have the ability to change color, a response triggered more by temperature and mood than a need for camouflage.
