Interesting! I just read up on this exotic: ackson's chameleons were accidentally released on the island of Oahu in the 1970’s, and have since established populations on all of the main Hawaiian Islands; a recent study has determined that predation on various endemic invertebrate species is occurring, including a 'Critically Endangered (CR)' Oahu tree snail (Achatinella mustelina)." http://www.issg.org/database/species/eco...

Okay, I was wondering because I knew they weren't native. I didn't know they were a problem there.That's an interesting fact you could put into your notes.

No - this guy was in the woods behind my house. (Unfortunately, since they are invasive).
