Von Honel Chameleon

Below are two pictures of the Von Honel chameleon.  Most of the Kenyan people are terrified of these creatures as they believe traditions that they are evil, demon possessed, or simply poisonous.  They are rather docile and harmless, however, and though they are very slow in bodily movement, speed isn’t important in getting food, as seen below (Yes, that is the chameleon’s tongue!).  We enjoy watching them catch flies, as pictured in the bottom picture.  David found this one while jogging through a neighboring village.
