Ep 138: Species Talk With Dr. Mark Scherz

Listen Here!

Dr. Mark Scherz comes on and talks with us about his work in defining the species of Madagascar. What makes a species? It is if they can breed or not? And how does this affect us chameleon keepers? With such subtle differences do the chameleons get confused? He fields these questions and helps us understand evolutionary biology. This is the first of two parts. In the second part, which will launch next week, we dive into the details of the new species within the Calumma nasutum group.
