Hatchling chamaeleo tinguos are active little creatures, despite not being built for speed. Their eyes can move in separate directions, and even when one appears to be focusing on something important, the other is always on the lookout for food. They will lunge at anything they think they can fit in their mouths, but it takes a while for them to figure out how size works. It's not uncommon for a magi to get tagged by the sticky tongue glob of an overeager chamaeleo tinguo that thinks they would make a good meal. Thankfully, even as adults, these creatures grow to be little larger than a human hand.

Technically, a chamaeleo tinguo can blend into its surroundings almost perfectly, but they rarely use this ability. Instead, they flash brilliant colors and intricate patterns to communicate with other lizards nearby, as well as confuse predators. They live in the depths of the Jungle of Raza, where even their brightest color displays can still be hard to spot among the shadows and colorful flowers. Finding these creatures is much harder than one might expect. Their eggs are exceedingly rare, hidden in forks in the treetops, and the adults climb higher still, foraging at the tips of branches with the help of their strong grasping feet. Your best bet when tracking down chamaeleo tinguo is to look for insects first -- these lizards can't resist an easy meal, and will congregate wherever there are butterflies and beetles up in the trees.
