The Brookesia Micra

Now ain't that the cutest little reptile you ever did see. Native to Madagascar, the Brookesia micra is the smallest chameleon in the world, diminutive enough to fit on a match head. It's one of many cases of insular dwarfism, the process by which animals scale down their body size when limited to isolated communities. If this is the product, I say we subject every species to it. Imagine a matchstick sized corgi! CUTE OVERLOAD.
