Culturally, one of Zambian’s most feared reptiles is the chameleon. They are considered to be bad omens, especially if you see one crossing the road. They are also locally thought to be poisonous and if you are bitten by one you will then turn into different colours. Chameleons are distrusted because they are able to change colour and the fact that their protruding eyes can turn independently of each other.
