One of the most common and obvious features of symbolic chameleon meanings is its ability to change color. The correlation and lesson for us humans is this: Change and adjust with our environment. Most folks (including myself until I did some research) think the chameleon changes color to mimic its environment as a measure of camouflage. This is true. However, the chameleon also changes color according to its mood, temperature and even in mating. Initially, I wasn't sure about the symbolic message of changing ourselves to blend in with our environment. This concept smacked of the "shrinking violet" syndrome. You know what I mean...blending in so as not to be seen, not wanting to rock the boat, or avoiding confrontation altogether. But when I learned the chameleon expresses its mood with change of color, that made me smile. Why? Because the symbolic lesson the chameleon teaches is not always adjust for the sake of blending in (hiding from threat). Nope - the chameleon beckons us to don every color of the rainbow with a goal to express ourselves creatively and with flair.

A suggested theory for the evolution of squamate vision is that corneal accommodation and monocular depth perception are "primitive" mechanisms in comparison to binocular vision and stereopsis. Chameleons use an alternative strategy to stereopsis in functional coupling of the eyes immediately before the tongue shot. This differs from stereopsis in that the images from both eyes are not reconciled into one. However, it is possible that this was first used for neural static reduction. This suggests that chameleons could be seen as a transition between independent and coupled eye use. However, it is also possible that the chameleon vision system is an alternative, equally successful mode of prey capture and predator avoidance, and perhaps more appropriate for the chameleon's niche as a camouflaged, arboreal hunter than other vision systems.

Most chameleons are green, yellow, or brown colored. However, these animals are famous for their ability to rapidly change the and pattern of their skin pigmentation among these colors, and almost black or white shades can be achieved. This is done by varying the amount of pigment displayed by specialized cells in the skin, known as chromatophores. This visual is primarily performed in response to changes in , sunlight, and mood, especially when a chameleon is interacting socially with other chameleons. Chameleons may change the color of their skin to blend in better with their surroundings, as a type of opportunistic camouflaging. Although it is often believed that camouflage is the most common reason for the color changes of chameleons, the primary reasons are actually related to the mood or motivation of the .Almost all chameleons are arboreal animals, moving slowly and deliberately in their of trees and shrubs. The often imperceptible movements of these animals, coupled with their usual green or mottled color, makes chameleons difficult to detect among the foliage of their habitat. Chameleons have feet that grip twigs and branches well, with their toes fused in groups of two or three (a zygodactylous arrangement) that oppose each other to confer a strong grip.We at Weird Animal Question of the Week like to joke around a bit, but Derek Halas made us wonder if it’s time for some solemn reflection with his question, “What color would a chameleon in a room full of mirrors be?”Chameleons have very unusual eyes, which extend rather far from the sides of the head within turret- or cone-like, fused eyelids. The eyes of chameleons can move and focus independently of each other. However, chameleons also have excellent binocular vision, which is necessary for sensing the of from the animal, so that it can be accurately snared by the long, unfurled tongue.
