Charlie is our Panther Chameleon.

Panther Chameleons are Zygodactylous – this means that they have toes which face backwards and forwards which gives the foot a tongs-like appearance. These specialized feet allow the Panther Chameleon a tight grip on narrow branches. Each toe is equipped with a sharp claw to gain traction on surfaces such as bark when climbing and coupled with their camouflage, you sometimes have to look quite hard to find Charlie.

Chameleons have very clever eyes. Their eyes move independently from each other which means they have a full 360-degree arc of vision around their bodies. When prey is located, both eyes can be focused in the same direction. They have excellent eyesight which means they can spot small insects from a 5–10m distance.
