Country of Origin: Madagascar
The Panther Chameleon is a species of chameleon found in the eastern and northern areas on the island of Madagascar. They are highly sexually dimorphic with males reaching up to 40cm in length and are brightly coloured, and females reaching little over half the size of the males and are typically a brown-pink colour.
Panther chameleons vary in colour depending on their locality with those from Nosy Be and Ambanja being generally more blue, those from Sambava are red, green or orange and Tamatave Panther chameleons are primarily red.
Chameleons are renowned for their unusual eyes which can move independently of each other, allowing the chameleon to look at two different things at the same time. Whilst doing this however, they lack depth perception, so when hunting for food, they will focus both their eyes on their prey, giving them sharp stereoscopic vision. Unlike humans, UV light is part of the visible spectrum for chameleons.
