The common Chameleon

A species of lizards, which can also be easily seen in Cyprus, is distinguished, as is well known, by its unique ability to change the skin color, which allows these animals to “merge” with the surrounding reality. The common chameleon reaches 30 centimeters in length, the usual skin color is green with dark spots. Chameleons feed on insects, which they catch with the help of a long and tenacious tongue.

Other species of lizards that are very common on the island are geckos and agamas , as well as the so-called snakeheads . The favorite habitats of lizards are the crevices of medieval castles and other historical sights.
