Chameleons are interesting lizards. They are distinguished by their parrot-like feet, separately mobile  eyes, very long and rapidly moving tongues, swaying gait, and the possession by many of a prehensile tail, crests or horns on their distinctively shaped heads. Some chameleons have the ability for outer skin color changing. Different chameleon species are able to change various colors and demonstrate pink, blue, red, orange, green, black, brown, light blue, yellow or turquoise colors, exactly what these unusual interior decorating and color changing lighting design do.

Some varieties of chameleons, such as the Smith’s dwarf chameleon, use its color changing abilities to blend in with the surroundings, as an effective form of camouflage. Color changing is also used as an expression of the physiological condition of the lizard, and as a social indicator to other chameleons. Some research suggests that color changing is social signaling, and that camouflage is a secondary concern. Chameleons have specialized cells that lie under their transparent outer skin. The cells in the upper layer contain yellow and red color pigments. There is another layer of cells below, that contain the colorless crystalline substance guanine. They reflect the blue color of light. If the upper layer appears mainly yellow, the reflected light becomes blue color plus yellow color, which is green.

Dispersion of the pigment granules in the cell grants the intensity of the appropriate color. If the pigment is equally distributed in the cell, the whole cell has intensive color. If the pigment is located only in the center of the cell, cell appears to be transparent. All these pigment cells can rapidly relocate their pigments for color changing.
