To survive in the ancient hyper-arid dune fields of the Namibian Desert, life has had to evolve some rather unique physical traits and behaviour. This is most apparent in the lives of smaller and more secretive creatures, like the Namaqua chameleon. Despite being the world’s fastest and most heat adapted chameleon, daily life in the desert cauldron is a constant struggle on the brink of death. Whether it’s ambushing food in the barren dunes or escaping the predators hidden under the sand, each day is a victory hard won.
