“All animals have a colour of their own – except for chameleons. They change color wherever they go.” A chameleon searches for his identity by deciding whether he should turn just one colour like other animals. As he travels with another chameleon he realises that having a colour of his own is not as important as friendship. His new philosophy is cemented when he meets a chameleon just like himself. “They remained side by side” changing colours together.
