Chameleons are Amazing – National Geographic

We’ve enjoyed quite a few chameleon videos, but this National Geographic video is not only full of fascinating information, it’s visually stunning. From how they shoot their tongues like arrows to catch bugs, to how they mimic leaf movement in the wind, to how they use their colors to communicate, it’s absolutely true that Chameleons Are Amazing.
