The Chameleon is a truly amazing type of lizards. It is obviously cute but also beautiful, coming in a vast range of color, from red to pink, to blue, turquoise, orange, green and even yellow. There exist roughly 160 species of chameleon mostly found in warm habitats including the rain forest, Madagascar and the desert, but they are also kept as exotic pets by many. Chameleons are distinguished by their funny, swaying gait and strange feet; they have two toes pointing forward and two toes pointing backwards. They also have separately mobile eyes with stereoscopic vision (3 dimensional vision). To feed they use their very long and rapidly extrudable tongues to catch their prey. Certain species of chameleon are able to change their skin coloration and pattern through combinations of blue, pink, red, orange, black, green, brown, light blue, Turquoise, yellow, and purple; making the chameleon one of the coolest animal on earth!
