Highlighted Species: Trioceros quadricornis

Status: Vulnerable - At least 35% of the world*s chameleons are endangered. Most chameleons are range-restricted, endemic to very small and specific regions, and so when those areas experience habitat loss, it has a devastating effect on these reptile populations.

The Bantu people in sub-Saharan Africa have a story about the origin of death. God gave instructions separately to both a chameleon and a lizard. He told the chameleon that he was to be a messenger to tell mankind that they would never die. He gave the opposite instructions to the lizard, who was to tell mankind that they would die. The two creatures set off on their paths, but the chameleon was easily distracted. He stopped to eat, and he walked slowly, not realizing that anything was at stake. The lizard on the other hand, sped along quickly and soon arrived to deliver his message first, and as a result, man was determined to be mortal and have a finite span of life.
