Definition: a type of lizard that can change the color of its skin to look like the colors that are around it. Chameleons are the only lizards who can see in two different directions at once.

(Descriptive classifier phrase). Unlike iguanas, chameleons can rotate and focus separately to observe two different objects simultaneously, which lets their eyes move independently from each other.

(Cultural note): This sign was seen in reference to a chameleon when the ASL speaker at the ASL immersion week joked about how Deaf have sharp, wide-peripheral eyes that they can catch someone vocalizing in the ASL zone.
