Uneasy

Uneasy

Adjective:
causing or feeling anxiety; troubled or uncomfortable.
Synonyms:
anxious - restless - worried - troubled - uncomfortable
definition via Google search

Image from HERE.
This chameleon sure looks "uneasy" to me, perhaps he's read one too many thrillers. I'm thinking we might know exactly why he looked like this if only we could see who, or what, was behind him!

Chameleons are also masters of camouflage (see my earlier post on camouflage) they are able to change their skin colouring to match their surroundings - usually in shades of green and brown, though some can turn almost any colour. You can find our more about chameleons HERE.
