    Picasso? and "cross breeds"

    I know it´s an older post, but just wanted to clarify some things. Picasso is not a cross between locals, but a natural local. I think it was back in 2004 that they came into Europe and were sold under the name Picasso, as the exporter (Olaf Pronk) wanted to keep the local a secret. Some...

    some nice pictures....

    Its NOT a Calumma species, but a Furcifer species ;-) Furcifer balteatus ;-) When that said, people once thought it was related with the parsonii group, as it has certain similarities, bodyshape, skin structure etc. F.balteatus is closer related to F.lateralis, F.major etc. then the parsonii...

    locality parsoni

    Well Im not sure what i would call them, but orange eyes is just a missleading name IMO. Alot of people have theories about how the different locales looks like and where they each comes from, but the fact is, most people have only seen a few pictures of the same animals and most of them...

    Parson Chameleon Color Phases

    I believe you are talking about Ralf, who hatched C.parsonii´s ? Ralf has a locale that he calls "green giants", But imo they look nothing like the green giants i have seen from masoala. Here is a link to his site.

    locality parsoni

    Where did you hear this? I do not agree on this one. Most of the C.parsonii locales are isolated in "small" forest fragments or plantations near forest edges. The "orange eye" has the biggest distribution area, and they too differ in colours, So what is a "real" orange eye yellow giant? I have...
