Why do chameleons change color?
Everybody knows that these creatures are able to change the color of their skin. They are able to vary the color from pink to turquoise. The question is – what for?
The change of the color is a kind of the reaction to various environmental conditions. They change the color when it is too hot/cold or when they "smell" danger. It is an interesting fact that males make their skin coloration lighter/brighter in order to court female species.
