ALG-567, Chameleon Arch, Tin Kani Area. Main opening has a 6.4 meter span, medium opening has a 4.9 meter span, and small opening has a 1.5 meter span (all measured). GPS 32R 574270 2720217. From ALG-566 (Oyster Shell Arch 2), descend east through a chamber in a low wall of sandstone for 80 meters to this very attractive arch. The triple arch has a striking ressemblance to a chameleon, hence the name. Note the specific posture of the saurian, the two forelegs, and the protuberant eye. A beautiful photo can be obtained near 4 pm. Guide Mohamed Bilali poses proudly under the main opening.
