It’s a testament to the power of camouflage in nature that the Chameleon, center, is almost completely indistinguishable from the chicken nuggets to the left and right.
The Confecerat Chameleon pictured here has a couple special tricks beyond those of the common or “Kama” Chameleon, including the ability choose specific elements of its surroundings. While most chameleons would simply mimic the color of the fries beneath it, the Confecerat is able to note the similarity in size and form of the nuggets and duplicate them for added invisibility.
The Confecerat is also able to alter its texture as well as color, the chromatophores in its skin being able to bloat and shape themselves for better mimicry. Most impressively, the specimen pictured was also able to alter its flavor, as noted by our hungry researcher, to taste exactly like chicken as well. Jerry was unaware he’d eaten the poor thing until he tried to return it to the pet shop.
