While speaking to an international media outlet, the chameleon’s owner, Elizabeth Poe, said that the name of the pet is Zeke and he loves putting his fingers into the stream of water from the tap.

She further added that this is a way of him reminding everyone to wash their hands.
The video shared by IFS Officer has already received more than 10,000 views and thousands of likes. Several netizens even commented and called it ‘brilliant’. One user even called the video, “epic”.
