Artist's Description

A picture of a Swartberg Dwarf Cameleon (Bradypodion atromontanum ). The specific animal is approximately 5 cm long from the nose to the tipo of the tail when full-grown.
We found the poor thing outside the post office in Aberdeen in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa with a thorn in its one eye, and another thorn it its one leg. We removed the thorns, but the eye is pretty much useless, so sadly chance for survival is slim.

The Cameleon is one of nature’s most effective hunters using stealth and effective camouflage to stalk its prey.


’n Foto van ’n Swartberg Dwergtrapsuutjie (Bradypodion atromontanum ). Hulle word ongeveer 5 cm lang wanneer volgroeid van die neus tot by die punt van die stert.
Ons het die arme dingetjie buite die poskantoor in Aberdeen in die Ooskaap Provinsie van SUid-Afrika raakgeloop met ’n doring in die een oog en nog ’n doring in die een been. ons het die dorings verwyder, maar die oog is onbruikbaar, so kans vir oorlewing in die natuur is maar skraal.

Die Trapsuutjie is een van die natuur se bes toegerusde jagters met ’n kombinasie van kamoeflering en bekruipvaardighede.
