There are about 3,000 kinds of lizards, and about 80 of these kinds are chameleons. There are many kinds of lizards that can change colors, though we usually associate this with chameleons. Lizards are the prey of many animals, among them hawks, badgers, wild dogs, and snakes. So they have many ways of protecting themselves one of which is changing colors. A lizard changes his colors by means of certain very small branched cells which are under the skin. In these cells there are pigments of many colors. By contracting or expanding the cells, the pigments in them are rearranged. The color of the skin that appears on the lizard is the result of the pigment that is closest to the skin. And usually this color comes quite close to the color of the foliage where the lizard happens to be. In addition to helping protect the lizard, the changes in its color are sometimes influenced by the temperature and light. When an enemy is near, the lizard will not only change its color but will also "freeze" to avoid being seen. If this doesn't work, most lizards will dart away as quickly as possible, and they are very good at getting away. Certain horned lizards are able to squirt blood from broken vessels in their lower eyelid. This blood may hit the face of the enemy, or it may make the lizard repulsive and so it won't be eaten. Many lizards are also able to drop their tails when they arc grabbed. The enemy stops to go after the tail, and the lizard escapes. 11 soon grows another tail. FUN TIME The Riddle Box 1.
