This is the hilarious moment when a cheeky chameleon photobombs his friend by sticking its tongue out, grinning for the camera. Footage shows male chameleon Ozzy trying to impress his female friend, Pandora by bobbing his head during a mating ritual. However, Pandora is not interested in his wooing and is more fascinated by the camera.

Footage was shot by chameleon breeder Craig Durbin from Southern California. The 54-year-old has been keeping reptiles since when he was just 10-years-old. Video shows a yellow coloured male named Ozzy bobbing his head at female Pandora as part of the mating ritual, however Pandora, obviously wants nothing to do with him and is much more interested in shooting her tongue out and posing for the camera.

Poor Ozzy, his efforts went down the drain and he was seriously dumped by ignorant Pandora who is more impressed by the photographer than by Ozzy’s seduction. What a pity!

Chameleons have long tongues that can shoot out one and a half times their body length.These species come in a range of colors, and many species have the ability to change color.

Chameleons are distinguished by their very extensive, highly modified, rapidly extrudable tongues, their swaying gait, and crests on their brow and snout. Their eyes are independently mobile, but in aiming at a prey item, they focus forward in coordination, affording the animal stereoscopic vision. Chameleons are adapted for climbing and visual hunting. They live in warm habitats that range from rainforest to desert conditions.
