Reptiles Capable Of Changing Colors

Green Anoles

Anoles change colour, too. Pituitary hormone changes green to brown. Temperature, backdrop, or emotion might cause this. When the temperature drops below 70 degrees F, the Green anole becomes brown.


Geckos may change colour, however it's not well-known. Not all 2,000 gecko species can change colour. Unlike chameleons, geckos change colour to hide from predators and catch prey.


All alter colour significantly. Chameleon skin iridophore cells change colour. Communicate, show dominance, accept or reject mating advances, signify pregnancy. Temperature or emotion can modify chameleon colour.

Bearded Dragons 

They don't change colour as dramatically as their cousins, although they can. Bearded dragons can darken their backs to absorb more heat and vary the colour of their beards to communicate with others.

Apodora Papuana

Color-changing Apodora Papuanas. Olive green, yellow, black, or two colours are possible. Unknown, although snake may be disturbed. Unknown, like many color-changing snakes.

Painted Terrapins 

Some reptiles change colour briefly. Males alter colour to attract females. Dark-brown shell turns white, crimson, and green. Because terrapins have two breeding seasons, this happens twice a year.

Green Tree python

Mature tree pythons turn brown. From yellow or red to green or blue in months. As the snake matures, it moves from the forest floor to the tree canopy, where it will reside as an adult.
