Zusammenfassung1.Es wurde mit Hilfe von Zeitlupenkinematographie und Elektronenblitz-Aufnahmen der morphologische und zeitliche Verlauf der normalen Beutefanghandlung des Chamäleons verfolgt.2.Die kürzeste Protrusionsdauer der Zunge vor dem Schuß betrug rund 1/5 sec. Längere Protrusionsdauern kommen häufiger vor.3.Die Dauer der Projektionsphase liegt bei etwa 15 cm Zielabstand zwischen 0,039 sec und 0,054 sec. Der Projektion liegt eine explosive Entladung vorher aufgestauter muskulöser Dehnungs… 
Cranial kinesis in lizards (Lacertilia): Origin, biomechanics, and evolution
TLDR
In various lacertilian groups, the cranial kinesis was improved by the development of various forms of streptostyly and flexipalatality, which was triggered by paedomorphosis processes.
Evidence for an elastic projection mechanism in the chameleon tongue
To capture prey, chameleons ballistically project their tongues as far as 1.5 body lengths with accelerations of up to 500 m s⊃–2. At the core of a chameleon's tongue is a cylindrical tongue skeleton
Evidence for an elastic projection mechanism in the chameleon tongue.
To capture prey, chameleons ballistically project their tongues as far as 1.5 body lengths with accelerations of up to 500 m s(-2). At the core of a chameleon's tongue is a cylindrical tongue
Streptostyly and biological coordinations in the jaw apparatus of lizards (Lacertilia)
TLDR
The adaptive role and evolution of various types of streptostyly and the related characters of the lizard jaw apparatus are discussed and are an example of biological coordinations.
Functional relationships in the jaw apparatus of the chameleons and the evolution of adaptive complexes
TLDR
The formation of a specialized mechanism for prey capture by the tongue played a role of a key innovation in the phylogeny of chameleons and the evolutionary mechanisms underlying the formation of correlation and coordination interrelations in the organism are considered.
Prey capture in Chamaeleo oustaleti
TLDR
The kinematics of prey capture by the chamaeleonid lizard Chamaeleo oustaleti were studied using high-speed cinematography and it is proposed that this assists the accelerator muscle in powering tongue projection.
Gular pouch diversity in the Chamaeleonidae
TLDR
Two different morphs of the gular pouch are described, showing that the tongue and supporting hyoid muscles are involved in the production of vibrations to produce biotremors that are amplified by the inflatedgular pouch and used in substrate‐borne communication.
Correction of presbyopia: old problems with old (and new) solutions
TLDR
The biomimetic properties and underlying optical mechanisms of induced anisometropia, small apertures, dynamic lenses, and multi‐optic lenses in ameliorating the visual consequences of presbyopia are highlighted.
A cryptic intermediate in the evolution of chameleon tongue projection
An incipient form of tongue projection occurs inPhrynocephalus helioscopus, a generalized agamid lizard. We argue that this condition represents a functional intermediate between typical lingual
