This Is Chimmy The Chameleon:



Cute eh ?...I luff em !

Chimmy is really klevur...he can turn each eye independently of the other.....which is really cool and a great party trick !!

So, I was wondering....does Chimmys brain display to him two separate views (like a split screen perhaps)? or does Chimmy see a morphed view of the two together..?.

do ewe know ?...do ewe even care ?..I care.....and that's why I want to know !

He is very cute! How long have you had him? I think his eyes probably work like binoculars, can be independent sort of but if he looks straight ahead, perhaps he gets a fuller picture that is more focussed.

Like your cute friend, you have 2 eyes. How do you see the world?

THANKS BC...but if I had my eyes where Chimmy has his and moved them so they are looking at completely opposite from each other (180 degrees) would Chimys brain fill the gap in then and make a whole picture.....

..y'see I'm assuming that there would be a cut off point where something in Chimmys view is NOT seen by both his eyes !
