A tiny lizard that fits on the end of a pencil has moved into its new home at Paignton Zoo in Devon.

The Nguru spiny pygmy chameleon, measuring just a few centimetres, is a critically endangered species and one of the smallest creatures of its kind. The spiny reptile, weighing just a few grams, is native to the Nguru mountains of East Tanzania, reports the Gloucestershire Live.
