8/10/2006: Jackson's chameleon with baby
I like how the parent looks overjoyed, and the baby looks kinda angry.
Hey maybe you weren't following IotD in 2002 and so this will be new to you!
Cellar IotD congratulates Neatorama on his own recent newborn, a girl. His little one is surely much more beautiful than this one, and not so ash-colored.

Same guy? The time frame is right.

The title for this post is so misleading...

Cute horn'ed beastie!

Yep. I was expecting MJ.

More bright green animals to make me hungry! Perhaps that's why the little ones are so dark, to be less appealing.

I think the whole point of being a chameleon is that they dont stay that colour all the time...

Michael Jackson and Boy George. Having a baby. All babies don't look alike.

Oh, what a cute little baby.

Now that I look at the whole thing again, this is from the original set of chameleons born at Taronga in 2002, and the Sydney Morning Herald gallery is old. The caption writer failed to mention a date. It's all good though, because this is not the same chameleon from the 2002 IotD, and it's still, to my mind anyway, supremely cool. I really love how these little babies hang out on their parents' horns.

How's she going to explain the color of that baby to her mate? Maybe they mated at night.

Thanks for the congrats (and for picking something from neatorama for cellar), Undertoad!

That's my theory anyway.

It looks a lot different than the adult in the first picture. This little guy actually has a head instead of a mouth and horns on the end of it's body.
