An insatiably hungry chameleon lazes on a tree branch in the forest, unseen by the happily buzzing insects that fly nearby until it is too late and – snap! – out comes the lizard’s very long tongue and the squishy bugs become dinner. But the crafty creature’s eyes might prove to be too big for his tummy as he greedily goes after increasingly large prey. ‘The Common Chameleon’ is a hilarious film told in the style of a short nature documentary.
