Why did the chameleon cross the road?

Stepping out!

It seems a bit early for chameleon season. Normally they only become apparent once the rains have started but this year they must be ignoring the rule book because I have seen three attempting to cross roads near my work in the past 5 days. It must be a hazardous affair; I try and avoid them when I see them but I suspect most people don’t. This one was on a quiet stretch of road on the way to work this morning so I stopped for a photo even though I only had my cell phone on me.

I have no idea why it was crossing the road – it did not look like a good decision to me as there was not a lot of cover on the right. But I did see it safely across – they can move quite fast with a bit of prodding!

Wild life that hasn’t been killed and eaten must be a rarity but I think chameleons are treated with sususpicion aren’t they

I haven’t seen a chameleon in ages! They fascinated me when I was a kid.

I am still fascinated by them – I guess that’s why I notice them on the road, I must be subconsciously looking for them!
