Fun fact! Chameleons are famed for their ability to change color. This process, known as metachrosis, is caused by pigment-containing and light-reflecting cells called Chromatophores. These chromatophores are grouped into subclasses of different hues, which are rearranged in response to changes in the chameleon’s mood, the external temperature, stress or visible changes in the local environment.
