The Maned Forest Lizard will change the skin color to match the color of the surrounding environment when it feels threatened. Camouflage appears under the outer shell where the nanocrystalline substance changes and the space between them changes the way light is reflected.

Living in bushes and trees on the edge of the forest, garden or yard. These lizards often fall from trees when chasing prey and immediately run towards the nearest tree. They eat a variety of insects including butterflies, moths, dragonflies, mosquitoes, flies and alates.
