||Ten months old|
is a female Yemen chameleon. She is a special pet, because she is a
very interesting creature. As everybody knows, chameleons can change their
colors. Also she is very small and cute. Draka brings me very different and
unusual feelings than other pets. And it's very interesting to have creature
like this in your home and taking care of it.
She is with a bit wild in character. Generally chameleons are a bit
independent type. She has started to recognize me and to be less scared than
before, but she still sometimes tries to escape from me. When she is trying
to scare me, Draka becomes with more intense colors. This is to show me that
she can be dangerous. But it's interesting when she is taking food from my
hand with her long tongue. It's a really interesting process to watching how
she is eating.
Most people are thinking that chameleons can become whatever color is around
them, but it's not exactly in this way. They can't become purple, pink, etc.
They change their color and intensity of their color to express different
moods such as anger, lower or higher temperature, reproducing mood, pregnancy
etc. She is around ten centimeters long without counting her tail. She is a
kinda slow animal. Draka is more static than one to be moving around.
Sometimes she stays with her head down and is interesting that she uses her
tail to grip somewhere. Draka eats crickets, worms, some kind of fruits and
that's all. It's not easy to care for her, but also it's not so difficult. I love her.
