changing capabilities is probably backward we spoke with daniel flynn marketing manager of the conservation side of california at the oakland zoo he said the color changing properties of millions don't really have the blend in but rather their natural relaxed state is what helps them lyndon b expression blending in like a million isn't entirely accurate meaning these lizards don't change their appearance to fit in but rather just stand out scientists long believes the comedians change change their coloring similarly to the way octopuses which shades which is why stretching in contracting series of special cells under their skin contain pigments bus making the color more or less pronounced but biologist and physicists somewhat recently we realized that something else entirely is going on with millions they have crystal lake cells under their skin refracted light they're called rid of force and these cells go through structural changes to produce different effects flynn explained anything agitates or exhilarates the million that's when things get colorful he said when they get excited feel threatened or won't display positively towards mates or negatively to a rival the crystals separate or compressed and give off appearance of different colors there's in a twenty fifteen study published in the journal nature communications researchers at the university of geneva in switzerland revealed that rid of force act like tiny mirrors but selectively reflect and absorb different colors why a lot of animals have color patterns birds and fish for example the cells that make their vibrant displays possible typically absorb reflects certain regions of visible light spectrum each cell has it specialty in cells are different for his could actually absorber reflect any and all colors of the spectrum flynn said some species change more colors and others for example some will change shades later the darker well others changed the more vibrant bright colors there are quite a few species so there's a lot of variance among all of them they couldn't change all different types of colors in college that are invisible to the human eye millions mood changes its nervous system activates the sales to contract or expand when the animal is relaxed the cell stay close together together and reflects short wavelengths like blue a russian excitement pushes those cells further apart enabling each credit for to afflict longer wavelengths like red orange and yellow but if the naturally relaxed self reflect blue why are chilled out millions typically green like their surroundings this has to do with pigments sacks inside be rid of force when explained basically when millions relaxed they're naturally visible is green to help them camouflage would be green leaves and trees this is due to the natural yellow pigment combined with a relaxed state of the crystal cells which reflects blue light blue plus yellow equal screen it may not be easy being green but it's necessary for the million which has no real defenses blending in its best bet against predators so if the color changes are dude a special sale under the skin why are these facts external the most
