    These seem to be the most common panther locales. How about a little help with the pronunciation? Please and thank you!

    Madagascar is an old French colony and while Malagasy is spoken it still retains a large French influence. They are pronounced as such:

    Am BAN Jah
    Am BEE Low Bay (Not lobe)
    Naw See Bay (Not nosy)
    Naw See Folly
    Naw See MitSeeOh

    Also sorry if I haven't been pronouncing them right, but that's just how I hear them in videos. That's just how the breeders and people who own them say it.

    I had no idea about the language origin. Thanks for the help. It's like saying Betta fish. It's Beh-ta not bay-ta.
