Female Oustalet's chameleon (Furcifer oustaleti) perched on a piece of driftwood at a beach. This species is common and widespread in Madagascar but is in Appendix II of the CITES list (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora). This list contains species that are not necessarily threatened with extinction but that may become so unless trade is closely controlled. It is one of the largest chameleons in the world, reaching lengths of around 64 centimetres. Photographed on Nosy Anako, Madagascar.
