Chameleons do well in a variety of enclosures but prefer at least two sides of screen for ventilation. Enclosures should be decorated with a variety of fake or live plants, vines and sticks for climbing. Panthers need both heat and full spectrum UV. Temperature gradients can range from ambient 70s to 90 degree basking zones. - care sheet

The Panther Chameleon

My Ambilobe panther chameleon, Thaxter (named after mycologist Roland Thaxter, 1858-1932) is nearing a year old now, in mid-May.
