Madagascar

A common misconception of the chameleon is that they change color to protect themselves; however, this is not entirely true.

Chameleons change their color due to a number of reasons like: mood, temperature, humidity, light or a change in their environment. Different chameleons will have different colors. Dominant and attractive males will have a brighter shade while the more submissive ones will have darker browns or grays. The female chameleons will change their color based on whether they will accept or reject a suitor.

Moreover, did you know a chameleon can swivel their eyes 180 degrees…? YES!!! 180 degrees!!!

Well…. not technically…. They can move their eyes separately with each eye having a field of 180 degrees. This means, if they need do, they can see 360 degrees…!!!! YIKES!

Another surprising fact that most people won’t know is that 90% of the wildlife found on Madagascar can’t be found anywhere else on Earth! This is why there are 59 of the 202 unique species of chameleons are only found in Madagascar!
