Chameleon Just Discovered Soap Bubbles And Can't Stop Popping

Jul 19, 2015
Would it blow your mind if I told you that a chameleon's camouflage isn't really about blending in? Prepare to feel a little jealous this summer... the most common reason chameleons change color is to regulate temperature. They brighten up to reflect more of the Sun's rays, or darken to absorb more heat. It's not enough to have built-in air conditioning, of course they've got to be flashy about it.

What's more? They don't even have to get up and go to the fridge to get a snack. Their tongues are often twice the length of their body, and they can fling them out and retract them in a split second, grabbing a bite in the process.

These features seem like they'd be great for a day at the beach. But all Laura the chameleon wants to do with her superpowers is play with bubbles.
