Minute leaf chameleon

The sewer smells seems to be mostly taken care of. We had some drama at game last night, I will have to talk with one of my roommates.  

Goal for the week 20hrs
work on the figure with the Anubis mask
start the modeling clay sphinx figure.

The minute leaf chameleon (Brookesia minima) is a tiny chameleon from the island of Nosy Be off the coast of Madagascar. They are one of the world's smallest reptiles at just a little over an inch long. Like other chameleons they can change their coloration they tend to be a very dark brown when calm and almost white when agitated. Their prey includes tiny insects like fruit flies and springtails. When in danger they first rely on their camouflage to escape if this does not work, they feign death, and if they are gripped they will vibrate at a high frequency. They have been bred in captivity but their eggs are so tiny that the preferred method is to incubate them in the enclosure.
