This page from the Goodtime Weekly Calendar of 1963 marks the week beginning forty-nine years ago today, and has an image of a very rare, wild American chameleon. You may be thinking that the photographer, credited only as L.G., photographed this one before she shifted to blend in with the background. But no—this is after she’s changed. These unusual creatures have woefully inadequate camouflage skills. Their skin only changes after a lot of exposure to the sun, and then it only turns brown. But they don’t know that. Notice the smirk? It’s because she thinks she’s totally invisible. Sad, really.
