Cool that someone already added info about this. :) I just found this in 1800 Woodcuts by Thomas Bewick and His School and the name caught my eye, before I realized it's a picture of a giraffe. Makes me wonder where "giraffe" came from (apparently Arabic).
Cameleopard is a variation of camelopard, an archaic noun for the giraffe. An avatar of Set, of Antiochus Epiphanes in E.A. Poe's Four Beasts in One: The Homo-Cameleopard and anthropomorphized in Percy Blysshe Shelley's Letter to Maria Gisborne, the contemporary cameleopard is far more inscrutable and variously dangerous, licentious, glacial, imperturbable, fabulous, comestible and nomadic. The modern cameleopard, as different from the contemporary as thorns are from villi, is agrarian and subject to anxiety and fragmentation when dropped from the shelf.
