I saw the same episode. Couldnt help thinking how it would be to have 100s of chameleon's in the grapes instead of 100s of rabbits... well maybe not 100s...

Interesting nature program Sunday night on public tv on lizards. One fascinating segment was on commercial vinyards in South Africa where they backed off on chemical insecticides in favor of native chameleons. To protect them during mechanical harvest they hand pick the little fellas off of acres of vines - and place them in the neaby forest for good keeping. Aparently they return and repopulate the vinyard by the next bug season - and happily do bug control all over again. Del, 25 below, no lizards here!
