Are there any of you who think of that one Culture Club song whenever you see this ninja of the lizard world? That’s just us? Well, in any case, the chameleon is one of the most unique members of the lizard family.
Where to start? Obviously there’s the fact that some of them can change their color. The ones that can do this do it as part of their social interactions with other chameleons, as a means to camouflage themselves from predators, and in response to temperature changes in their environment. The spectrum of colors they can manifest is amazing. There’s black, blue, green, red, yellow, turquoise, purple, brown, pink and others!
Then there’s their unusual shape. Chameleons have horny protrusions or spines along their heads and necks, and then there’s that crazy tongue of theirs. They can ballistically project their tongues from their mouths in order to snare prey. And if you thought the tongues on large chameleons were impressive, it’s been proven that smaller ones have even longer ones! Imagine it – a lizard’s long sticky tongue flicking out with the speed of a bullet to snag a treat from the air. Amazing, huh?
Folkmanis Puppets brings this amazing lizard to life in the only way they can – with rich, vibrant colors and durable, super soft materials. Not only that, but he’s as lifelike as they can make him, meaning he’s the best addition to a lizard lover’s menagerie possible! Short of, you know, an actual chameleon.
