Two-banded Chameleon
Population: No data
Status: Endangered
Population trend: Decreasing

Furcifer balteatus, also known as the two-banded chameleon or the rainforest chameleon, is a species of chameleon that is endemic to Madagascar. Ongoing activities within this lizard's range that affect the quality and extent of remaining forest include land conversion for agriculture and timber extraction, and it is thought that these are likely to threaten this species. The chameleon is highly desirable in the international pet trade, and although an export ban has been in place since 1994 and the species is CITES-listed, collection outside reserves is permitted and illegal export represents a potential threat."

I decided to dedicate this years inktober to endangered, enslaved or extinct animal species. In November I'll sell some of the originals to raise money for local animal shelters.
