How do I sex a panther?

Just bought an ambilobe panther chameleon and was wondering how to sex it since the people at the store i got it from didn't seem to know how. Is sexing a panther chameleon just like sexing a veiled? Will a panther have a spur on the back of the foot if it's male? What are some easy ways to sex baby panther chameleons? The one I have is about 3 months old it looks like.

article

Thanks for the article. The guy at the petstore told me that it would have a spur if it was a male and i said i think that's just veileds. He says it's with both, but looking at pictures it doesn't look like they have spurs haha. My cham is starting to get alot of specs of crimson on it, especially where the beard is.

From what the article said it's hard for me to tell at this point. This morning my cham was grey but now this afternoon the cham is orangeish with lots of red coming in in certain places... I'll have to post pics of it when i get them.

Panthers do not have a spur.
The tail base will be larger on a male to accomodate the hemipenal glands.

they do not have spurs, you are correct that it is only veiled chams.

Do you know how old it is? The bulge of the male hemipene can show as early as a few months. If you go here and look at the "boy?" photos you can see the blue in Cy's cheeks and the little bulge at the base of his tail (sorry I can't include photos, webshots doesn't hyperlink). He was three months old. He is a Nosy Be so not sure about the coloration (showing blue in cheeks) but if yours is much more than a few months, and a male, I would think the hemipene would be noticeable. If you can post pics of that area I am sure someone can help you sex him/her.

Veileds are not the only chameleon species where the male has spurs...but panthers do not have spurs for sure! Gracefuls, some flapnecks, C. africanus and a few others have spurs.

The tail base should let you know even at a fairly young age.

If I were to guess I would say female. But this is my guess.
