Like the Chameleon, one eye on the future, one eye on the past. – Malagasy Proverb Chameleon is one of the fascinating creatures in the Spirit Animal Kingdom. Not only does Chameleon blend into their environment for safety, but their symbolism and meaning manifests in the ability to change color depending on their temperament. They are, in effect, Nature’s Mood Ring! In various cultural settings, people have interpreted the Chameleon’s aptitude as much a statement of uniqueness as it is a product of their environment.
