Description: I asked the land owner if she's ever seen these, but she hasn't. Then I found the old shell in the Port Jacksons. Looks like they're still hanging in, but just barely - such a small patch of habitat this.

Description: unexpected encounter with a fiery chameleon, it was walking down the middle of a sandy farm track, the defiance with the camera lasted for 19 seconds after which it turned back down the track. As lunchtime was approaching the arrival of the neighbouring foreman was imminent and as he thinks this road is an extension of Kyalami the chameleon, who was slowly heading off down the centre of the track again, needed to be relocated. The response to being picked up was rapid and extreme.

Description: As big as it was unexpected. 11:09 on a sunny mid-winter's morning I was walking as quietly as possible hoping for a shot of a basking Terrestrial Brownbul (never on the ground, incidentally - always in thick bush!) when this 'log' as thick as my arm moved slowly across the trail about 20m ahead. Tried to creep closer for a head shot, but at about 10m the snake must have detected me and shot off between the rocks into the bush.

Description: Gravel road, Fiscal Shrike seen attacking what was thought to be a lizard in the road. The shrike flew off as the bakkie approached, leaving the chameleon on the, road, bloodied but alive. Placed carefully in vegetation, maybe recovered, but very definitely with a headache. Shrike still hungry, no doubt, chameleon maybe will survive. Rescue or simply interference? Driver Venus, photographer Mars, who would have stopped sooner and not interfered, but recorded the action. Ethical question of who has the right approach!

Description: The first picture is just how we found this lizard: half covered in foam, resting on a rock in a small stream. Shortly after we spotted the lizard, it jumped back into the water and hid in the foam just at the surface of the water, leaning partly against the rock underwater. After being caught again and released, it jumped back into the water and swam away. Photo credits to Megan Varvaro
