Animals Video

This chameleon clearly isn’t shy as she photobombs her friend and cheekily sticks her tongue out at the camera.

The funny footage, shows male chameleon Ozzy trying to impress female friend, Pandora, without success.


Ozzy bobs his head as part of a mating ritual but Pandora creeps into shot and seems much more interested in posing for the camera than anything else.

The hilarious video was shot by Craig Durbin, a chameleon breeder from Southern California.

The 54-year-old has been keeping reptiles since he had his first one for Christmas when he was just 10-years-old.

He said: “In this video you can see a very yellow coloured male named Ozzy bobbing his head at the female.


“This is a mating ritual but the female, named Pandora, obviously wants nothing to do with him and is much more interested in shooting her tongue at my camera which is her normal ritual.

“Anytime I pull out my camera phone she runs over to see if I have something to feed her and usually she will attempt to shoot her tongue at my phone.


“Chameleons have long tongues that can shoot out one and a half times their body length so needless to say I’ve been hit a few times.”
