Panther Chameleon color is a prominent feature of the Ambilobe chameleon for sale, and there is a wide range of amazingly unique colors being produced by some panther chameleon breeders, like us here at CBreptile.com. Some will be surprised to learn that despite misunderstanding and misinformation by television commercials and viral social media videos that the panther chameleon does not change color to instantly match any background it is placed against.
Panthers do exhibit color change, though, for a variety of reasons, including a method of communication, to better reflect heat or absorb radiant heat, and to blend in with their natural surroundings also known as the Ambilobe panther chameleon habitat.
Cage Selection and Size for Ambilobe Panther Chameleon
What we use for our Amilobe Panthers is all-screen cages or cages with at least two screened sides (front/top, side/top) with otherwise 2 solid panels or walls (the front and one or both sides. The screen top provides ample air flow, increased water evaporation, lighter weight and a hotter basking spot without having to worry about overheating the entire environment since it is breathable with 2 screened open sides. If you live in a cooler or hotter climate, chances are you are using forced air and forced air heat which can dry your ambient air out. If you heat or cool your home the air can very dry, and chameleon cages featuring solid side and back walls will maintain humidity within the cage better than those that are completely open, as well as preventing the mist based water soaking your walls, or furniture in your home.
Inside the Ambilobe Panther Chameleon for sale Cage
Panthers are shrub and tree dwellers, so the captive environment must accommodate a life spent primarily above ground. It should appear lush, but not overgrown. There should be plenty of climbing paths made of branches, vines and/or plants. Plants play a critical role in providing a sense of security, so be sure one or two “areas of refuge” are provided.
Live or artificial plants can be used; the ambilobe panther chameleons for sale will happily thrive among either. Live plants provide a more natural appearance and offer some humidity benefits. Some safe live plants commonly used are weeping fig trees, umbrella trees and Pothos.
Heat and Light for Your Ambilobe Panther Chameleons for sale
In our chameleon breeder buildings, we try our best to maintain an ambient day-time temperature of 75-78 degrees Fahrenheit, with a basking spot of 88 to 95 degrees in each enclosure. Nighttime temps are 70 to 75.
Locate the basking light on top of or suspended over one corner of the cage. Position a branch or vine directly below it, at a distance to achieve the proper basking temperature. As young panthers grow, the same perch that was once a safe distance from the heat source may become too close, so adjust as required. Monitor all temperatures with a thermometer, and watch for seasonal fluctuations. If your home gets cooler than 68 degrees at night, use a ceramic heat emitter to raise the nighttime temperature.
Water For Your Ambilobe Panther Chameleon for sale
Water provides ambilobe panther chameleons for sale with three critical benefits: hydration, adequate relative humidity, and a way for them to keep their eyes clean. Providing them with water requires a different approach than with most terrestrial lizards. With very rare exceptions, Ambilobe panther chameleons for sale will not reliably drink from water dishes. Instead, they are attracted to water that moves and/or glistens. We provide this by misting and dripping the enclosure foliage, for all of our Ambilobe panther chameleons either manually or automatically.
While many keepers I have known over the years have succeeded in using a manual approach, I prefer automation. A good automatic rain system can provide humidity spikes and hydration throughout the day, even when you are away from home. If you choose to automate, research the available rain or mist systems on the market to see which one fits your panther’s needs the best. Mist King, Exo Terra, and Zoo Med all offer rain systems that vary in price, Mist king is by far the best and offers their own unique features.
The Ambilobe Panther for sale should be provided the chance for a thorough drink at least four times daily. Do this by setting a day by setting the duration on four or more mist cycles for up to five minutes. Of all misters, we prefer the mist king pro, with 9 total daily cycles. A setup like this: 2 being 4-5 minutes and the rest short spritzes of 30-60 seconds over the span of 8 hours per day. It’s important to allow the setup to dry out for the other 16 hours each day…. or by using a Zoo Med Little Dripper two to four times a day, dispensing the water at one to two drops per second so that the Ambilobe panther chameleon for sale has ample supply of hydration.

It is a common misconception that panther chameleons of any kind can change color to match any color of their environments. All chameleons have a natural color range with which they are born and is dictated by their species. It is affected by temperature, mood, and light. If, for example, the color purple is not within the range of colors to which their particular species can change, then they will never turn purple. Panther chameleons are at the top of the list when it comes to caring requirement but if set up correctly (correct Misting system, correct UVB lamp, and Hotspot, with plenty of foliage and climbing apparatus.
