FUN FACTS

Panther Chameleons occur in many areas of Madagascar, each having completely different colorations. The Blue Bar Ambilobe Panther Chameleon is the most colorful of all, showing at times nearly every color of the rainbow. Members of all chameleon species change their colors primarily based on mood, & temperature. Male & female Panther Chameleons are extremely dimorphic, meaning they look very different from one another, & males become the most colorful when they are around females or rival males.
