Brookesia chameleons have all adopted a terrestrial lifestyle, moving about on the ground or on the low branches of bushes and mossy trees (4), and resting on the stems and leaves of low vegetation (7). Little is known specifically about the biology of Brygoo’s chameleon, but like other Brookesia species it is likely to feed on a range of insects. It uses its bulbous, independently moving eyes to scan the surrounding area for potential prey, and then shoots out its long, sticky tongue at lightening speed to capture the unsuspecting victim (4).
Brygoo’s chameleon is known to store sperm, and lays clutches of two to five eggs under bark, moss or dead leaves (2). These tiny eggs measure only 2.5 by 1.5 millimetres (4).
