- A colorful lizard that spends its life hunting insects with its long tongue. It moves slowly through the trees, spying the surroundings with its independently roving eyes.
They are notably the greatest egg-layers of all vermin, laying 40 to 50 eggs at a time. However, due to being vermin, these eggs never actually come into play and they cannot be used for egg production. Fortunately, their giant chameleon counterparts lay just as many eggs which can be freely used by your dwarves.
Curiously, chameleons in Dwarf Fortress have a body striped with all the colors of the rainbow, as their ability to change color has not been implemented yet.
Some dwarves like chameleons for their ability to change color and their eyes.
