Chameleons communicate their emotional states and attitudes to one another by changing color. The gallery offered areas keyed to the chameleon’s most excited and calm states, as well as camouflage areas. The lizard could access, and respond to, these areas via a network of branches. Mirrored glass rocks provoked territorial and mating displays, and foam rocks and heat lamps provided basking areas for humans and lizard.
