Changing colour of a chameleon

Changing colour of a chameleon

SCIENCE FOR YOUTH BY HIYA ISLAM Curled up on a branch in a fine Saturday morning, they are just looking for food: crickets, worms, roaches and what not. They see you, but you don’t. That is how camouflage works. This is what chameleons have mastered over years through evolution. They change colours almost as quickly as some people change their […]
