Sticky Tongued Pascal at The Reptile Zoo

 

When I opened Pascal's cage for a little cleaning today I knew exactly what was on his mind... FOOD!

 

 

 Pascal is a large and beautiful Meller's Chameleon who was donated to The Reptile Zoo from a great couple who had sucessfully kept him in captivity, which is rather difficult. Meller's are one of the largest species of chameleon and are native to Africa.

 

 

Since Pascal was so set on getting a snack I thought it would be a great opportunity to show his extreme snacking skills in action. Pascal is normally a pretty slow moving guy, but when there is food involved that all changes. First he locks his eyes on the prey, in this case a juicy King Meal Worm. 

 

 

Next he leans in towards the food, slowly opens his mouth....

 

 

... and BAM! Snack attack! Want to see just how lightning fast his sticky tounge can be? Check out this video from today's feeding!

As you can tell from the picture below Pascal is pretty proud of his skills, just check out the smirk on his face! Next time you're in The Reptile Zoo make sure to visit Pascal, maybe he'll even show off for you.
