We read another one of Mrs Brough’s favourite books. This time she chose a picture book full of facts which is very similar to a non-fiction book.
So today we learnt some COOL facts about Chameleons…
- Chameleons are lizards and there are about 120 different types of chameleons. Half of them come from Madagascar and the others live in Africa.
- Chameleons feed on all sorts of creepy-crawlies.
- Most lizards gulp their food without chewing it, but chameleons grind everything up thoroughly.
- Most of the Chameleon’s eye is covered in skin, like the rest of its body. There’s a tiny peep-hole in the middle of the eye that the chameleon sees through.
- A chameleon’s feet are shaped like pinchers for holding on tightly to branches.
- A chameleon will only fight with the same kind of chameleon as itself.
