|COLOR CHANGING MECHANISMS|
ddddModel species are specific animals used in scientific studies to represent characteristics from the class as a whole, and they are useful in comparative studies as well. The two reptilian species of interest here are the anole and the chameleon. Both of these species use color change but represent two different ways pathways of stimulation (see Color Changing Mechanisms). Click on the links below to learn more!
ddddComparing both of these species enables a better understanding on the uses of color change in reptiles in general and its importance to the evolution of these two species in particular.
