REPTILIAN TUESDAY #49
We’re jetting off to the island of Madagascar today to find one of their many species of chameleons! They may be using their camouflage super powers, so we will have to use our expert observation skills! You ready? Let’s do this!
MEET THE PANTHER CHAMELEONS!
Diet: Carnivore: insects, small animals
Conservation Status: common
- Male Panther Chameleons are the most colorful of all chameleons.
- They can change color to blend in with their habitat.
- Male Panther Chameleons also change their colors to attract females.
- Each Panther Chameleon eye moves independently of each other. They can point them in two different directions at the same time!
- They have long sticky tongues that they use to capture their prey!
- Panther Chameleon tongues can be longer than their bodies!
- They are slow movers.
Panther Chameleons are gorgeous with their bright colors. Did you know that even a blind chameleon could still blend in with its habitat? Cool, huh? We just love chameleons; how about you?
