chameleon definition and meaning

What is a "chameleon"?

A chameleon is a unique reptile known for its remarkable ability to change color. They have specialized skin cells called chromatophores that allow them to adjust their pigmentation, helping them blend into their surroundings or communicate with other chameleons. These reptiles have a distinctive appearance, with bulging eyes that can move independently and a long, prehensile tail. Chameleons are primarily arboreal, meaning they spend most of their time in trees, where their grasping feet and long tongues come in handy for catching insects. They have a slow, deliberate movement style, relying on stealth and camouflage to capture prey and avoid predators. With their fascinating color-changing abilities and unique physical adaptations, chameleons are fascinating creatures that have captivated the imagination of people worldwide.
