Caption: Fischer's chameleon (Bradypodion fischeri) amongst leaves. This chameleon lives in the mountainous rainforests of Eastern Africa. Like most chameleons, it can change colour according to its mood and environment. The eyes can be moved independently, and are covered by a cone-shaped scaly lid. Fischer's chameleons can grow to 40 centimetres in length. They feed on insects and small lizards, which they catch by flicking out their long sticky tongue. Fischer's chameleons are popular as unusual pets.
