What is a Chameleon? A chameleon is a kind of lizard that can change color. A chameleon can turn brown, green, blue, yellow, red, black, or white. The colors help the chameleon let other chameleons know how it is feeling. If the chameleon is happy, it may turn green. If the chameleon is mad, it may turn yellow. A chameleon also changes color because of how hot or cold it is, or how light or dark it is.
