Barely an inch long from nose to tail, it’s hardly surprising that this tiny animal is rarely spotted.
The miniature creature, from the Brookesia genus, was spotted on an expedition in Amber Mountain Park, Madagascar, by British wildlife photographer Will Burrard-Lucas.
The delicate-looking creature is one of the world’s smallest chameleons – and can sit on a human thumbnail with room to spare.
This one is a fully-grown adult, so you can imagine how small the babies are.
It is so small it doesn’t even need to change colour to help hide from its enemies.
