Tiny camo

Match-tip tiny, Brookesia micra (juvenile pictured) is the smallest of four new chameleon species found on the African island country of Madagascar. With an average adult length of just over an inch (2.9 centimeters) from snout to tail, B. micra is among the tiniest reptiles in the world.

My question is, how were these things ever even discovered? Not only crazy small but color-changing to boot. God makes redonkulous things. They ought to inspire some updated hymn-writing: “…his eye is on the micro-chameleon, and I know he watches me.” (from Nat Geo)
