A team of German-Madagascan researchers may have found the smallest reptile in the world, the Brookesia nana or “nano-chameleon”. Its body measures 13.5 mm and has a length of 22 mm from head to tail. Its size is as small as a seed. Its measurements make it the smallest reptile out of all 11,500 known species from the Bavarian State collection of Zoology. It eats smaller animals such as mites that can be found on the rainforest floor. The nano-chameleons’ habitat is threatened by deforestation making them endangered. Recently, the area has been placed under protection so the species could continue to survive.
