Abstract

We quantified the foraging behavior of the Jackson's chameleon (Chamaeleo jacksonii xantholophus), an invasive insectivorous lizard species in Hawai'i. Using video taken in the field, we focused on percent time moving, moves per minute, and movement speeds. Our results supported previous findings that chameleons are “cruise foragers” (sensu Butler, 2005), a foraging behavior unlike almost all other species of lizards.
