No, they never do. They change the color of their skin depending on a number of emotional states. They change color when frightened, when mating, when fighting another chameleon etc...
Chameleons or chamaeleons (family Chamaeleonidae) are a distinctive and highly specialized clade of Old World lizards with over 160 species described as of June 2015. These species come in a range of colors, and many species have the ability to change color.
Chameleons are distinguished by their feet; their very extensive, highly modified, rapidly extrudable tongues; their swaying gait and crests or horns on their brow and snout. Most species, the larger ones in particular, also have a prehensile tail. Chameleons eyes are independently mobile, but in aiming at a prey item, they focus forward in coordination, affording the animal stereoscopic vision.
Chameleons are adapted for climbing and visual hunting. They live in warm habitats that range from rain forest to desert conditions, with various species occurring in Africa, Madagascar, southern Europe, and across southern Asia as far as Sri Lanka. They also have been introduced to Hawaii, California, and Florida, and often are kept as household pets.
