I was shocked by what I saw in the seas, and by what I didn’t see.

I saw no sharks, no whales, no dolphins. I saw no fish longer than 11 inches. The larger ones had all been fished out.

When I swam in the Aegean, the sea floor was covered with litter; I saw tires and plastic bags, bottles, cans, shoes and clothing.

The Natal Midlands dwarf chameleon (Bradypodion thamnobates), also known under the longer common name of KwaZulu-Natal Midlands dwarf chameleon, is a chameleon native to woodland habitat in the Midlands area of the South African province of KwaZulu-Natal. Its specific name thamnobates means ‘bush-walker’.

This is a very close relative of the black-headed dwarf chameleon (B. melanocephalum), which looks very different due toadaptation to low forest and fynbos on the slopes and cliffs seawards from the B. thamnobates range. B. melanocephalumand B. thamnobates may be phenotypically plastic populations of the same species, but juveniles of both species were raised under identical conditions and developed into what was phenotypically expected of their original populations, indicating they are separate species.

The Natal Midlands dwarf chameleon is classified as a Near Threatened species by the IUCN.[5] It is used in local folk medicine.
