Rhinoceros chameleon (Furcifer rhinoceratus). This chameleon gets its name from the horn-like process on its nose. It is endemic to the forests of Madagascar. Male rhinoceros chameleons can reach 27 centimetres in length, but females are smaller at only 12 centimetres. Chameleons are famed for their ability to change colour in order to match their surroundings. They also display different colours depending on their emotions or reproductive condition. Chameleons catch their insect prey by flicking out a long, sticky tongue. Photographed in Ampijoroa Forest, Madagascar.
