Have you ever wondered what it would be like to change your colour according to your mood or surroundings? Well, that’s exactly what the common chameleon can do! This amazing reptile has the ability to alter its skin colour and pattern to blend in with its environment, communicate with other chameleons, or express its emotions. It can also move each eye independently, giving it a 360-degree view of its surroundings.
The common chameleon is not only a master of disguise but also a skilful hunter. It has a long, sticky tongue that can shoot out of its mouth and catch insects, spiders, and even small birds and lizards. Its strong, prehensile tail can also grasp branches and balance itself while climbing trees.
