Did you know that chameleons can’t turn blue? I didn’t. Until I saw this photo (Nat Geo). Now I know. And you do too.
Hah ha ha! That’s the way rumors get started! You saw the picture so you believe me, but is it true? Do you know for sure? Can chameleons not turn blue? Or is it just the Florida chameleons that can turn blue?
Now you may also choose to ask what this has to do with cactus and a blog about cactus, and the connection is that when cactus were first being cultivated for the trade in the 1920s in England, the lead nurseryman, Sir Albert Frosher, was also a chameleon fancier, and so ever since cactus and chameleons have been paired. It’s traditional!
