A Chameleon Redefines Gluttony in This Adorably Gross Animated Short

This homage to nature films from director Tomer Eshed is titled Our Wonderful Nature: The Common Chameleon. The animated faux-doc takes a particular interest in the lizard’s eating habits, which amount to astonishing gluttony even though it never leaves its perch. Bonus points for the perfectly droll narration.

If you enjoyed The Common Chameleon, there’s another film in the Our Wonderful Nature series—it offers even more gorgeous animation, as well as an up-close look at the mating habits of the water shrew that contains a slow-mo kung fu fight of tiny, yet epic, proportions.
