Connochaetus is wildebeest IIRC - I think this is blue wildebeest?

Another easy one. The species name of this animal means "male panther".

Nope, not the one I had in mind. On the chameleon Wikipedia says:

The specific name pardalis refers to the animals' markings, as it is Latin for "leopard" or "spotted like a panther".
