This midget now goes by the name Brookesia micra. Scientists have always felt that there was a limit as to how small a vertebrate with a compound eye could be, but each time they reach it they find one smaller. These chameleons are found on the island of Madagascar where they are threatened by habitat loss, deforestation and probably anything larger than a baby frog.
