Chameleon Antennas is a site where you can blog, shop, and sign up to receive News Letters in the never ending pursuit of defining whether a Chameleon has antenna or antennae.
Come on by our shop for the best custom built cages by Chameleon Antenna or just for a bag of bugs, and for a discussion about whether Chameleons have Antennas or Antennae.
A) Antennas; In radio an antenna is the interface between radio waves propagating through space and electric currents moving in metal conductors, used with a transmitter or receiver.
B) Antennae; One of a pair of long, slender, segmented appendages on the heads of insects, centipedes, millipedes, and crustaceans. Most antennae are organs of touch, but some are sensitive to odors and other stimuli.
We hope this discussion peaked your interest in this site, and as for the source of confusion between antenna or antennae, it were the Greeks: In consideration that an antenna is a device that sends radio and television signals. The singular noun antenna is just one of the feelers on a bug’s head — a sensory wand the insect waves around to check out its surroundings. The plural of this antenna is antennae. (Those Greeks and their funny words!)
