Journal 34

December 15 - There is a chameleon here that looks like a miniature pterodactyl: spiny-ridged back, fish face, pouch beneath its jaw, long tail. It's possible to get very close - 2 or 3 inches - to its face before it moves, and I have grabbed hold of its tail. I have seen it exhibit the following colors: green (dominant body color); red (on its face when I get close with my robes); powder blue (only under its eyes, on a very scaly skin), yellow, brown, black, grey, orange, and white! Amazing creature!
