Extremely Tiny Chameleons Discovered In Madagascar

It’s hard to even fathom an imaginary creature as good this — presenting the world’s best animal, chameleons that lay golden eggs and can stand on a match tip, found on a remote, magical island. Via Wired:

Researchers have recently discovered four new chameleon species, which rank among the world’s tiniest reptiles. Adults are just over an inch from snout to tail. The smallest of the newly found species — Brookesia micra — live only on a small island called Nosy Hara.

    Who needs alien lifeforms when we have these?

    This is AMAZING!  It’ll revolutionize ecological management from top to bottom!

    Sound business principles demand profit maximization through expednditure control.  Following this fellow’s example, if we can reduce all hippopotami to the proportional size of a field mouse, we can free up to 10,000X more resources for human consumption.  More Cheetos(tm) for ME!!!

      I dunno if it could survive in a pocket, they look kind of delicate.
