Full Answer

Chameleon's are well known for their ability to change color to defend themselves from predators. Chameleons are an oddity in that their eyes operate completely independent from one another, which is a trait that gives them the ability to see different things out of each eye. The chameleon's diet consists of insects, smaller lizards, berries, fruit and flowers, and its lifespan averages from 3-5 years.
