Knysna Dwarf Chameleon...


Aldo Kleyn is a local Knysna resident, who is adamant about saving the dwindling population of the Knysna dwarf chameleon.


He has spent the past 15 years caring, rehabilitating and releasing this endangered species and calls himself a "chameleonist".

The Bradypodian species ("slow foot") is truly fascinating. It is a forest dweller but can adapt equally well and is often found in very verdant gardens.

It has the longest tail of the species and its tongue is twice the length of its body. Its colouring is bright green / bluish with purple, yellow and pink hues. It can grow up to 180mm in length.
