Nature's Greatest Tricksters

The Chameleon

Chameleons are living, breathing mood rings. Specialized pigments in their skin allow them to adjust their color to any situation they happen to find themselves in. Predators on the prowl? Time to blend in with the background. Gorgeous lady chameleons passing by? Time to break out the technicolor dreamcoat. These multi-hued lizards have visual mimicry down pat.
