Triceratops!

Okay so it isn't a triceratops but it is a three-horned lizard and it lives in my yard.

He is a Jackson's Chameleon.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chamaeleo_jacksonii http://www.hear.org/species/chamaeleo_jacksonii/

Although there are wild populations around Hawaii, there aren't any known populations around where I live so it is a bit of a mystery how this one came to be in my yard. Probably some neighbor kid dropped him off in our yard after his mom refused to allow him to keep it. Anyway, it appears he's alone so no need to worry about being overrun by chameleons any time soon. Hopefully he'll stay around and help control the pest bug population. That would be nice.

I wouldn't mind having one of those in my yard!

they are pretty fun animals. They're slow, don't make noise, don't really bite, they change color, and they eat bugs. Its a winning combination in my estimation.

He hardly moved so it was easier to get a good shot. A cooperative subject.

Strange creature (to my eyes anyway). Unusual pet! (keep us informed of his progress)

I'll keep you posted... if I can find him again. They may be slow but they do know how to blend in.

That's something special to have in the yard, I hope he stays too.
