This chameleon has got lunch licked - using his giant 1ft-long tongue to snatch an unsuspecting grasshopper. The green and black striped male panther chameleon had his eye on the grasshopper as it climbed down a thin branch.

Using his tail for extra support, the lizard steadied itself before launching the attack. Thomas Marent from Neuenhof, Switzerland, travelled to the Andasibe-Mantadia National Park in Madagascar to capture the special moment.
