Chameleons (not to be confused with rapper, turned successful angel investor Chamillionaire) make the top of my list of favorite lizards.
Equipped with a prehensile tail, much like that of monkey that enables them to climb & hang from branches, independently grouped toes that work like thumbs for grasping, along with independently structured eyes that are capable of focusing on two completely different objects at the same time - these reptiles are one of the most unique in the animal kingdom.
As if that weren't enough, they also have 4 layers of skin - each capable of filtering out specific pigments or reflecting white light that enables them to camouflage to blend in to their environments - plus a long sticky tongue that could be as long as the length of their bodies used to capture prey such as insects & even small birds. These creatures are as physically versatile as they are beautiful. 👌
