Scientists have found two male and two female chameleons. The male chameleon is smaller than the female. The male chameleon is 0.53 inches in size and the female is 0.75 inches.
Madagascar’s forests are its home
Madagascar’s forest is home to nano-chameleons, says scientist Oliver Hallischek of Germany’s Natural History Center. This forest was being harvested for many years, but it is now being preserved to save the nano-chameleon.
Reproductive organ size is 20% of its body
The nano-chameleon’s reproductive organ is 20 percent of its body, says scientist Mark Scherge. Reproductive organisms in some organisms are large in proportion to their body. It is the same with the new chameleon.
