Seems like chameleons can entertain the crowd even if they’re not changing colors. Michigan-based artist, Emma Ward just shared pictures of her pet reptile Olive grabbing tiny props and the Internet went crazy about it. Her tweet got liked almost 400,000 times and retweeted nearly 170,000 times. Olive definitely became one of the most popular chameleons on the web.
What’s even cooler is that she also got a photo-response from a flying squirrel owner which shows both pets sharing the same hobby.
“Knowing she likes to grasp anything that goes in her hands, I thought Lego swords and Evangelion weapons would be an interesting idea,” Ward told Chron.com.
Emma got the 2-year old chameleon in April 2016 from an exhibition in Detroit and they have been besties ever since.
