Madagascan mystery. Little is known of the globe-horned chameleon's life in the wild. What does it eat? How does it behave? The answers elude us. We do know that the forest denizen is well adapted to its environment, with microstructures on its feet and tail increasing friction on branches to ease its movement through the trees. But its habitat is shrinking due to logging and slash-and-burn agriculture, and poaching for captive collections remain rampant. The mystery may vanish before it can be solved.
