Where's Waldo?
The farm is a host to many creatures. Look carefully—there is a Jackson’s Chameleon (Chamaeloeo jacksonii xantholophus) on the avocado branch. Not native to Hawaii, but rather introduced in 1972 (escaped pets), they are well established on most of the Hawaiian islands-in fact, most Jackson’s Chameleons sold on the mainland as pets are from wild caught in Hawaii. We see a fair amount of them in the coffee lands.

Jackson’s are shy and solitary. With the characteristic ability of color change, they are hard to spot. Their long tongues—one and a half times their body length—have a sticky tip to catch insects, other lizards and worms. Their goggle eyes can detect and move independently, allowing them a 360 degree view of their own patch of paradise
