Alien Species
"If you feel sorry for yourself because you have no shoes, you should meet someone who has no feet. Then you can take his shoes, because he won't need them."
―A wise Chameleon saying

The Chameleons are a humanoid race that supposedly has the ability to change the colors of their skin and blend with the surroundings. They actually don't, however, and this false belief led to the near extinction of their race.
