New Found Friend

At the beginning of the week, Rob picked up this little guy in the parking lot at MAF. He couldn't leave him to possibly get run over, so home together they came. The kids have been thrilled to catch grasshoppers and crickets (of which we have an over-abundance right now!) for it and watch the chameleon with its long sticky tongue grasp and swallow them.

As we handle him (carefully) each day he is also becoming more and more tame, naturally climbing onto Rob's fingers and walking around without changing black (which is the color chameleons change when they are disturbed or upset or anxious).

Note all of his colors! From what I can find out online, I think he is known as a Jeweled Chameleon.
