Picture- This is a picture of a chameleon using it's adaptations to survive in its environment.
Summary- The chameleon has many adaptations to live in its environment. I found the most interesting adaptation to be is that the color of their skin changes. Most of the time it changes when it is frightened, when the climate changes and when the light changes. Another adaptation is that their eyes are independent. this means that they can move in any direction and this helps them detect nearby predators. Also, the chameleon's tongue is incredibly fast. The human eye can hardly see it. The tip of it is very sticky so it is easier to catch prey because they are not very fast. When another male chameleon meets up with a male chameleon, they blow up to a greater size. Chameleon's only like females in their territory. The last adaption is that their long tail acts like another arm. It helps the chameleon balance on very small branches. As you can see, the chameleon's adaptations help it live in their environment.
Opinion/Reflection- I found this article really cool and interesting. I find it interesting how their skin color changes. I have never heard of this before and I was surprised when i heard this. Learning about animals and their adaptations is really cool and the chameleon seems to have the most interesting ones. I am really glad I got to learn about the chameleon and how it's unique characteristics help it survive in the wild.
1. What adaptation did you find the most interesting and why?
2. How have humans adapted to where they live?
3. Can you name another species and name a few of its adaptations?
