Namaqua Lizard – Postcards for the Lunch Bag

Artwork: Zebra Zensations Technical Pen & Daniel Smith watercolor on Hahnemühle Watercolor Rough Postcard

If you are here for the Weekly Wednesday Giveaway #5, you can find it here.

Today my hubby took a Namaqua Lizard in his lunch bag.

Did you know that rather than living in trees, the Namaqua Chameleon is a desert dweller. This has led to other differences – they can spread their toes which I’m sure makes the other chameleons jealous, because they can’t. The namaqua is faster too – helpful when they’ve been teasing the other chameleons for their fused feet. Their color changes also help them regulate temperature as well as helping them hide. And last, but not least, they excrete salt through their nasal glands so they can reabsorb water faster. Ewww. That’s just … ewww.
