Have you spotted one recently?
I am fascinated by the Chameleon. Its ability to change its appearance to fit its surroundings provides this little creature from the lizard family a truly remarkable ability.
I vividly remember the one and only time I spotted one in Lahore. It was a hot summer day and I was walking the grounds of my school. In my stride, I caught a sideways glance at what I thought was an oddly shaped branch. On closer inspection, I realised it was a giant brown chameleon peering at me through those roving eyes. At first I was scared it would simply pounce on me for blowing its cover…!! But I quickly grasped that it was probably more scared of me. So I walked off not realising that the moment would be the last time I would set eyes on one of these magnificent creations of nature.
I am curious to know how many of you in Lahore continue to spot Chameleons in gardens, parks etc. and when was the last time it happened.
