Mr. Nature: Hungry Chameleons

Jambo, everybody! Mr. Nature here–I had to chase Dr. Credulous out of my chair.

I remember the first time I had chameleons and dumped an order of live crickets, dusted with vitamin powder, into the cage. Zap! Zap! Zappity-zap! All gone, in a matter of minutes.

I don’t know why, but something about Nancy Pelosi talking about having to “capture kids while they’re in high school” brought to mind hungry chameleons capturing defenseless crickets. But chameleons are an awful lot cuter.

Eyes in turrets that can focus independently, firmly anchored by a prehensile tail and a surprisingly strong grip, with a shooting tongue that’s usually quite accurate, and powerful jaws–not to mention the ability to change color, drastically: the Lord has abundantly and with genius equipped the chameleon to do its thing.

God’s stuff–wow.
