Now you see him, now you don't. A flap neck chameleon is like that. Any stimulus can make him change color. He can even slip into polka dots.
His eyeballs work independently, seeking food in every direction. When both eyes focus on the same spot -- a bug, for instance -- a sticky tongue the length of his body darts out and dines.
This flapneck fellow sells for $49.99 at Rainforest Pets, 3401 Henderson Blvd. Call 871-3223 for information.
