This is a skeletal preparation of an embryo of a veiled chameleon lizard (Chamaeleo calyptratus). Chameleons are unique reptiles that can change colors from shades of green to red depending on their emotional state. They have eyes that work independently from each other so the chameleon can look to the front and back simultaneously. Chameleons also have a long sticky tongue for capturing prey like insects. This image was prepared at the 2011 Woods Hole Embryology Course.
