Panther chameleons are one of the largest and arguably the most colourful of all chameleons. They are native to Madagascar and occur over most of the island. The males are considerably more colourful and grow much larger than the females. The colour scheme of each individual is determined by whereabouts in Madagascar they come from (referred to as their locality). Panther chameleons were previously thought of as being difficult to look after. This is no longer the case as advancements in both our knowledge on their care as well as improvements in the products available mean that although considerable dedication is still required they are no longer classed as an advanced keeper’s species.
