Pepito, the chameleon is inside a box that Dr. Dolittle presents to his daughter, maya. Although it looks as though Charisse is taking the chameleon from inside the box, the shot of the chameleon was taken ahead of time and was actually sitting on a branch. The trainer handed the actress the chameleon and she pretends she is lifting it up from the box. The trainer retrieved the animal after the scene was over. When Charisse shakes the unopened present, the box is empty. For almost all of Pepito's scenes the trainer put the chameleon inside the prop or on the couch, floor, table, etc. and the actors would pick the animal up and set it down. The trainer was waiting off camera to retrieve the chameleon and reward it with an edible treat and his own comfortable cage.
You're an endangered species!
Archie: Is that a threat, buddy?
The deer speaks with a female voice, yet has antlers and is therefore a male.
At the end of the movie, besides the music, some of the animals have some small extra parts during the credits.
