    It is true that Chameleon’s change color from the time they are old enough to realize their surroundings. This was taught to me in Florida, that Chameleon’s change color when frightened or to avoid being attacked by strangers or the like. They have the intellect of standing still like a statue when danger surrounds them. This is when their colors change to blend in. E.g. a snake in the grass might be ready to attack for food, therefore the chameleon turns green to avoid and confuse the snake. A domesticated animal in the house (and chameleon’s are notorious for getting into houses in Florida), a chameleon can change their color to match the kitchen floor and the like. Quite interesting to hear, see, and be there to watch this happen, which I have done in Florida years ago. The chameleon shown here is definitely sick, you can tell by the eyes and they usually are this small, not all, but knowing this one is sick just by the eyes he is smaller than the average chameleon. Hope this information was helpful.

    But also could be that he’s not old enuf for the color change. Thot they had to be a little older for that to happen? Does anyone know just exactly why he’s not changed color? Anyone out there a vet?

    Don’t chameleons take on the color of what’s around them? Why is this one still green?
