Lizard “Sees” With Its Skin

4 posts in this topic

When Domenico Fulgione placed Moorish geckos on dark surfaces, he saw what he had seen for years. These spiny, hand-sized lizards changed colour. Within an hour, their typical creamy white complexions transformed into blacker hues that better matched their environment.

And then Fulgione blindfolded the geckos.

They still changed colour. How does an animal adjust its colour to match its environment, when it can't see that environment at all?

Yes, but can a blindfolded gecko still sell insurance?

Does anybody else love the thought of blindfolding lizards?

Why have I not been doing this for years?
