    By Tyrone Ping on GroundUp Until early 2022, there were 19 described species of chameleons in South Africa. That number has now changed, with three new species described, taking the total to 22.

    Space force! NASA gears up to deflect asteroid

    Bet the dinosaurs wish they’d thought of this.
