Pictured is a Flap-Necke Chameleon (Chamaeleo dilepsis), taken at Selinda Camp.  They can often be seen in all our camps ambling slowly looking for small insects.  They famously change colour, when stressed, and most significantly their eyes move independently of each other.

Did you know? – In Botswana culture the Chameleon can be related to witchcraft. Its changing colours and eyes that look in opposite directions are often seen as mistrusting. Some of our staff will run away from the slow moving reptiles and are more scared of them than snakes.
