This adorable little chameleon

Please watch this video of true facts about chameleons (parental advisory warning):

Did you know that a lot of Kenyans think chameleons are poisonous (or maybe venomous hard to tell)? I was shocked because my Kenyan friends were shocked when I dove at the ground to pick up this chameleon that was sprinting (I know, I didn’t know chameleons could do that either but he was booking it) across the hot sand.

Look at him go!

I believe this is a flap-necked chameleon (Chamaeleo dilepis).
