Caption: Chameleon's head. Close-up of the face of an unidentified chameleon. Its eye (upper left), mouth (across bottom) and horny projection (centre right) are seen. Chameleons are famed for their ability to change colour in order to match their surroundings, although this is mostly limited to browns and greens. They also display different colours depending on their emotions. They catch their prey, mostly insects, by flicking their long sticky tongue at it. Photographed in Madagascar.
