Transcript of The life of a Panther Chameleon

THE PHYSICAL ADAPTATION & THE HABTAT OF THE PANTHER CHAMELEON furcifer pardalis The taxonomy of the panther chameleon kingdom:ANIMALIA
phylum:CHORDATA
class:REPTILIA
order:SQUAMATA
family:CHAMAELEONIDAE
genus:FURCIFER
species:F.PARDALIS ADAPTIONS 1.)The Chameleons eye's can move and focus independently and view two different images at the same time.
2.)The chameleons Skin pigment cells can change color depending on temperature, mood, and during breeding. Basically they communicate with other chameleons through slight color changes.
3.)The chameleons They can shoot out their tongue nearly a foot out and catch an insect with incredible accuracy.
4.)The chameleons extraordinarily long, powerful tongues and rotating eyes that give them practically 360— degree vision add to the panther chameleon's remarkable package. Both attributes allow the chameleon to strike its prey suddenly and from a distance. While the reptile moves slowly, its tongue is fast as a whip and covered in viscous mucus, with strong muscles at the end that allow it to firmly grasp its prey.

The Behavioral adaption would be the manner in which the chameleon moves throughout vines and limbs. They move very slow, wavy, and precise so they appear to be leaves blowing in the wind. This makes them less less likely to be spotted by a predator. 1.) HABITAT AND OTHER FACTS Were the Panther Chameleon's natural habitat is and what it looks like and what else lives there and it's predators and the things it eats. The Panther chameleon lives in the eastern and northern parts of Madagascar. It claims its home in the tropical trees and bushes that live on the island. In their habitat they like to climb trees and bask in the sun. They live in a very humid place. They spend their time hunting in the trees and looking for still water. Humans can change the habitat of the Panther chameleon. Chameleons are popular pets in America. Many other chameleons share the island of Madagascar with the Panther chameleon such as the Pygmy Leaf chameleon and the Parson's chameleon. Overall the Panther chameleon's main habitat is the jungles of Madagascar.
