A Chameleon's Tongue

Interesting stuff today at livescience.com:

It's powered by a special mechanism, one that separates the tongue's projectile-like motion from direct muscle contraction, and allows it to accelerate at 41 Gs, said Christopher Anderson, a researcher at the University of South Florida. One G is the normal force of gravity. An astronaut feels about 3.5 Gs during a space shuttle liftoff. A mere 8 Gs will cause most people to black out.

Hi I have many many reptiles. I understand completely how to take care of them. I have 20 snakes, 4 dragons, iguana, 3 sugar gliders, and A veiled chameleon, I have had the chameleon for about 3 years. Its a male, Been fed all the right things and in the right quantities. He for some reason has never had any color except the green and purple bands. That is it. Only turns black when stressed but ive seen 20 more with lots of color. Can you tell me why????
