Madagascar's 62 Mile High Razor Spiked Forest
minuscule chameleon, which is less than an inch long from nose to tail and can
sit on a human thumbnail, lives in Madagascar's 62 mile high Tsingy Razor Spiked Forest.
Tsingy de Bemaraha is a Strict Nature Reserve since 1927. Strict Nature Reserves are protected areas set aside for nature conservation and research established by law on government-owned lands.
Tsingy is located in the Melaky Region of Mahajanga Madagascar on 375,600 acres or 152,000 hectares of land. The minuscule chameleon which is less than an inch long from nose to tail is a species only found in Tsingy.
Madagascar’s isolation in the Indian Ocean is the reason 90% of its animal and plant life is found only on its island. There are well over 70 varieties of lemur, 30 types of chameleons and countless undiscovered plant species.
