Caption: Mediterranean chameleon (Chamaeleo chamaeleon) looking around while walking up a branch. It is displaying dark brown coloration here, which helps to camouflage it against bark. Although this colour provides effective camouflage, it does not change colour to match its surroundings, instead using changes in pattern and colour to indicate its mood, as well as a reaction to light and temperature levels. See clip K006 9791 for the same chameleon with green coloration.
