As promised, a species guide for the CHEMeleon, as seen (or more like “to be seen”) in my animated short, Nukeland. (Props to cameronaugust for the awesome species name!)
Chemeleons are a post-apocalyptic race of mutant chameleons grown to the size of a hippo (at max) with the level of intelligence similar to dogs’. They’re mainly carnivores that like to prey on the less fortunate creatures of the wasteland. Their cunning and formidability makes them the perfect hunter.
When two Chemeleons meet to reproduce, they decide which one gets to lay and hatch eggs by dueling and showing dominance. The egg laying parent then chases away the weaker partner and raises 1-6 hatchlings. Separation happens from one day to another, as the “mother” quickly loses sense of parenthood and chases off its own offsprings. Chemeleons are solitary creatures who seek out each other for mating/duels only.

- if you do make one, please give credit to me for the species
