Types of panthers

Ok this is a really stupid question but I am confused, which doesn't take much some days. There are so many different types of panthers, example: Nosy Be, Ambanja, Maroansetra etc. Ok now what confuses me do they get their name from the colour they are, type they are or where they are from. The more I read the more confused I get. Also can you breed two different kinds of panthers together or do they have to be the same example do you have to breed a nosy be with a nosy be and a ambanja with a ambanja or can you breed a nosy be with a ambanja.

They get it from the city that they are in or close too.

Not everyone feels about it the way the Kammers do. Here is a really good old thread on the topic:

Jenna's standpont is what i believe. Not only are these animals miracles of nature themselves (eyes, tounge, body shape, color, and hands/feet) but how widely yet consistently they very, because of their location, is a miracle in and of itself.

This may sound odd, but think about it. You have bright blue Nosy Be's, yet at the other end of the specturm you have pink Ankarmy. They posess the SAME genetic make up, but Every Single Ankarmy is pink, and EVERY SINGLE Nosy Be is blue. The variations are great, but they are consistant. And that is a true marvel of nature.

Actually, blue chameleons from the Nose Be region are considered to be an occasional polymorph in wild populations. The more common color is green with blue/dark green barring, striped red eye turrets when displaying, and a portion of the white around the mouth in yellow where the jaws meet. A lot of them have red flecking on their bodies as well.

Wow, very interesting links. Ok now I understand where they get their name from and what is meant by "pure". The only reason I asked about cross breeding them is because I have seen several for sale that are cross breed and I didn't know if this was normal or proper breeding. Now I see what harm it can do. Thank you for the help.

Jenna did you ever get my e-mail with the pics in it? I'm getting the feeling that it didn't work out right. I'll re-send it.

Your site is very informative Jenna, thanks for the link.
I thought chameleons also came from Hawaii.
