I was wondering the same myself, but aren't they all introduced species?

Wow! There is so much alpha in this post. Much wow! I'm surprised you didn't mention the chameleon sith lord that we met... they will see in the video :twisted:
But seriously these were some of the most fun herping trips I've ever been on. It don't get much better than climbing for herps, especially chameleons. Next stop, catching mamo caimans in the canals at night. We will snorkel all night for them and shine underwater! Sleep is for babies and old people

Here are some videos that correlate with the two trips that I went on with the slithering green snake sith lord.

Dang, jealous of all the veileds! We tried one night but came away with only Oustalets. The exotics are always fun in S FL :)

There is an essence of paradox about chameleons and proximity to them is joyful. Its in your faces too! Like happy-go-lucky giants in a tropical Whoville of aliens big and small and even tiny yes the wee-est of all!

Great post - I can see the progression from chameleon novice to having them (literally) dripping off you! Love it.

Hilarious, interesting and scary all in one.
Can't help but love baby burms regardless of how 'bad' they are. I've never been able to euthanize or turn one in.

The photos of yall with invasives all over you are great. Really demonstrate the densities some of those animals are at these days.
