  • They eat live insects.

What will happen to a chameleon on a cold day?

Are chameleons stinky?

How do I know if my chameleon is cold?

Since they are chameleons, we can tell if they are cold by whether they wear their resting colors during the day or if they stay dark trying to soak up as much energy as possible. The dark colors indicate the need for more heat or longer heating sessions.

Do chameleons know their owner?

No. Reptiles don’t possess the emotional centers in their brains that mammals do to allow them to bond or anything to their owners. They associate people with threat or non-threat or at the most, positive experiences.
