First time in 100-years chameleon seen

Scientists have found an elusive chameleon species that was last spotted in Madagascar 100 years ago.

Researchers from Madagascar discovered several living specimens of the special Voeltzkow’s chameleon. It was found on an expedition to the north-west of the African island nation.

Researchers don’t know a lot about the chameleon because it is so rare. They believe that it only lives during the rainy season. The reptile hatches from eggs, growing rapidly, sparring with rivals, mating and then dying during a few short months.

Researchers said the female of the species displayed particularly colourful patterns during pregnancy.

The scientist say the Voeltzkow’s chameleons’ habitat is under threat from deforestation.

That is so sad, that this is happening. And why would people do that? I think that we should stop that their habitat is under threat from deforestation.
