Here's Looking At You

Madagascar is spectacular for a lot of reasons. One is it's array of chameleons—the reptiles widely known for their ability to change colors.

Around half of the world's 150 chameleon species are found there alone. This includes the planet's smallest one, which grows only to about an inch long (29 mm), and the largest, which can reach over two feet (68 cm).

These stunning images were captured by PhD student Asia Murphy, who has worked closely with WCS Madagascar.
