Well I'm sitting on the back porch enjoying the 92 degree heat and this MONSTER was apparently above me on the framework of the patio roof. It dropped on my shoulder, ran down my leg and ended up where you see it. I almost peed my pants. Now you know why I always wear a hat... we have huge spiders too that drop down looking for a way into the house.
There's about 40 of these Chameleons living here along with the snakes, dragon flies, mice, rats, squirrels and possums, and I live in a RESIDENTIAL NEIGHBORHOOD! Not to mention the 25 varieties of birds. We have a family of Egrets who have their nest in the neighbors tree across the street. They start squawking and flying around at 6am every day for the past 10 years. Once in awhile they show up on my back porch railing and scare the hell out of me when I open the back door. They're 3 feet tall!
Anyway these lizards aren't dangerous. We have another variety that have teeth, are 1 foot long and will attack if they're provoked. It takes a pair of pliers to unhook their mouth from your finger - just like a crab!
