Panther Chameleon with a rather different coloration I know you have tons of these already and they are not hard to see in Madagascar, but I like this one: 1) because it is red, white, and black and not the usual green or brown, and 2) you really can see how the eyes can move completely independently. What they actually see in their brain with such eyes is hard to imagine. Incidently, although the common thinking is that chameleons chnage color to match their surroundings - that is more true of the New World Anoles - the Old World "true" chameleons change color to indicate mood. So this one might be feeling romantic or agitated or ????? Andasibe NP,Furcifer pardalis,Geotagged,Madagascar,Panther chameleon,Spring Click/tap to enlarge Promoted
