Marc and a Trioceros hoehneli on Mt. Algon in Uganda.
If you have the opportunity, I highly encourage hopping a plane and visiting chameleons where they live. It is definitely an eye opening experience both in being in a foreign land and also in how, dare I say, similar conditions can be during certain times of the tear where you live. The key is to know what conditions those are! But there is a level of preparation that you should go through and part of that is to get comfortable with the idea. To that end I am sharing a conversation I had with Marc Vaillant. Marc works for the United Nations clearing land mines from war torn areas. This has him seeing areas that aren’t normally visited by people expecting fruity drinks by the poolside, but it gives him a great opportunity to enjoy a passion of his, field herpetology, in some interesting places. So enjoy my talk with Marc and perhaps we can start thinking about a visit of our own. You can follow Marc’s travels at his Facebook page below!
