Indian Chameleon | Kachindo is the only species of chameleon found in India, Sri Lanka and other part of Asia. I have captured this photo of the Indian Chameleon of Nyari dam, Rajkot and this dam is 5 Km far away from the Rajkot. Nyari dam is an attractive place for nature and bird lovers. Today, I am sharing some interesting facts about the Indian chameleon (Kachindo) and also share one YouTube video in which you can see the one chameleon who changes its color.

Some of the interesting facts about the chameleon are:

The Scientific Name of it is Chamaeleo zeylanicus.
They are available in shades of green or brown or with bands.
The Size of is up to 37-38 cm.
It survives on a diet of grasshoppers, termites, crickets and other insects.
It has the ability to change color rapidly. The primary aim behind the changing of color is to communicate with other chameleons and to control the body temperature.
It has an ability to focus or observe two different objects simultaneously and it can focus in a different direction with its two eyes.
