Chameleons are reptiles that appear in The Lion Guard universe. They live in the Pride Lands, the Outlands, and the Theluji Mountains.


In the Real World

Flap-necked chameleons are typically green, but have the ability to shift their color. Their heads have a bony casque, and their tails are prehensile. Their eyes are large and round, and have the ability to move independently. They have flat bodies and long limbs. A chameleon's tongue is long, with a sticky, mucus-coated tip.

In The Lion Guard

Chameleons are green with pale yellow spots and darker green stripes on their tail. They have long pink tongues and gray-green eyes. Like real chameleons, they have a casque on their head and a long prehensile tail.


In the Real World

Chameleons live in dry savannas and forests, and are often found on low branches or plants. They use their sticky tongue to catch large insects to eat, and may also eat small animals such as lizards. Females lay up to seventy eggs per clutch and bury them underground, and the juveniles reach maturity at around a year. The chameleon's ability to change color is used for social displays and to indicate breeding status.

In The Lion Guard

Chameleons are pretty much similar to their real life counterparts.
