A Rhampholeon, or Dwarf Chameleon, found during the expedition in another forest on nearby Mount Socone. Many of the mountains of northern Mozambique have their very own species of dwarf chameleon, this may well be a new species. Found by Professor Simon Willcock, this particular one was nicknamed Rupert. He liked to perch on Willcock’s fingertip.
