    Thank you! She’s back digging in the plant today as if nothing happened. I won’t distub her until she’s done this time.

    Advice on Panther’s Egg laying ‘burrow’

    She came out & abandoned the hole in the last 15 mins. I feel so bad that I didn’t know until I brought the plant down looking for her. I put her and the plant in another room with a proper egg laying bin next to it so she has her choice. It’s been several years since I’ve had eggs. Do they...

    So my rescued female panther showed no interest in her egg laying bin for the last month. While I was cleaning her cage today, I put her on this hanging plant.

    New “rescued” panthers chameleon pair

    Perhaps she is just chubby - wouldn’t surprise me. She’s a lot fatter than the pic shows. What would be an additional sign she is gravid? Its been at least 10 years since I’ve actually tried to breed & this was unplanned. I’m reading & following through on all preparations just in case.

    New “rescued” panthers chameleon pair

    I’m newer to this forum & saw this post. I also rescued a gravid girl from Petco on New Years Eve. She is near the pink color of yours. They said they had her with a male for almost 60 days then alone for 30 days. I have 7 other chameleons & never bought from a pet store before. I’m wondering...
