We interrupt your normal read now to bring you this special report.
With the date of the move a mere 8 days away, I’ve decided I need to hurry up with my bucket list of things to do here before leaving.
Yesterday I text a friend whom I’ve gone field herping with, and who said he knew of a spot where we could find chameleons in the wild (though they are not a native species here, some pockets of populations exist). We made an impromptu trip to said spot.
Within the first 20 feet, I spotted a chameleon! It was a young female
Both of us were crazy-giddy at having found one. For me, it was a “lifer” (a herp I desperately wanted to find in situ). I used to own chameleons. They are my absolute favorite lizard of all time. I can’t express how excited I was to find one 😀
The rest of the night was uneventful. I think too many people know of that spot because she was the only one we encountered. But it was totally worth it. We also found a corn snake, several species of bugs, and a boar skull in a bucket (I’m guessing someone killed the thing and wanted to have the skull cleaned by bugs, so they left it in the field and will come back for it at a later date)…
Anyway, just wanted to share the chameleon find. It totally made my weekend!
Now, back to your regularly scheduled programming 😉
