Thanks a lot Cammie. This chameleon did move slow when I was handling it. I saw a lot of chameleons in Madagascar and they never moved that fast. Even at their top speed I think they can still be caught by hand if really wanted to catch them. They must rely heavily on their camoflage!

I had to comment on the tat as well, very cool!

Did this cham still move slow with you handling it? I always wondered if they ever moved fast. Lol
