Not for Camoflage

Chameleons change their color by dispersing the concentration of pigment in their skin. This is controlled by the autonomic nervous system. Color changes are determined by external factors such as light and temperature as well as emotions. They do not change color to match their background.

  1. Uuuuuummmmm……… – Yes they do change color to match their background. Ever see one go from a green leaf to a brown tree trunk? Does it stay green on the tree? No. THEREFORE they do change color to match their background. duh.

  2. No… – No, hence the leaf and trunk would have a different feel to them? Anyway, why would they be on a trunk? Branch.

    Duh.
