All chameleons can change their skin color. Different species can change different colors including blue, pink, orange, brown, red, black, green, turquoise and yellow.

2. Thorny Devil

The shape of this lizard’s body helps collect water, which is then channeled to the mouth. It has a false head, behind its real head that helps ward off predators. It is also capable of changing colors depending on the temperature.

1. Philippine Tarsier

This tiny animal grows to about 4-6 inches in height! Their eyes can’t move in their sockets, so they can rotate their heads 180 degrees. Their thin naked tails are about twice the size of their body length, and are used for balance. For millions of years they have lived in rainforests worldwide, but currently they only exist on a few islands in the Philippines.
