Brown Leaf Chameleon (Brookesia superciliaris)

Comprising the smallest of all the chameleons, Brookesia are unusual for their habit of living primarily on the rainforest floor. They do however, climb vegetation for a safe perch to spend the night, or as in the case of this Brown Leaf Chameleon (Brookesia superciliaris), to find a spot where it will shed its skin in relative safety. Ranomafana National Park, Madagascar.

Ghost Mantis (Phyllocrania paradoxa) ♀

With forests full of keen-eyed predatory birds, many of Madagascar’s smaller creatures have evolved incredibly cryptic appearances to evade detection. In the case of this Ghost Mantis (Phyllocrania paradoxa), the remarkable leaf like mimicry serves also to conceal it from potential prey, which will be seized and eaten alive if they venture too close. Andasibe, Madagascar.
