They change color depending on their mood. They possess uniquely adapted hands and feet distinct from other tetrapods. They feature independently movable eyes. This comprehensive volume delves into these fascinating details and thorough research about one of the most charismatic families of reptiles—Chameleonidae.
Written for professional herpetologists, scholars, researchers, and students, this book takes readers on a voyage across time to discover everything that is known about chameleon biology: anatomy, physiology, adaptations, ecology, behavior, biogeography, phylogeny, classification, and conservation.
A description of the natural history of chameleons is given, along with the fossil record and typical characteristics of each genus. The state of chameleons in the modern world is also depicted, complete with new information on the most serious threats to these remarkable reptiles.

Hi my name is Hailey Evans. I need some help on a project in my Class. I go to Grenada Elementary, and your article gave me a lot of information about Chameleons. I would like to ask you a question for my project in 6th grade. If you could get back to me that would be great. I would really appreciate it. Thank you so much for your time. I hope we can talk soon.
