just wondering how long it takes a male ambilobe panther to reach its full color potential? i did a search and came up with nothing. im sure it varies from individual but an average will work thanks.
Panther chameleons at rest and calm states do not show their bright or neon colorations. They will only show their bright colorations depending upon mood, emotion, stress, mating, and can show different coloration during health issues as well. Ambilobe are usually green with some barring (red or blue) at rest. Nosy Be are blue most all the time, rest or not. Mafana are olive green at rest and turn bright lime greens and yellow when stressed. Sambava & Diego Suarez's are usually olive green at rest and then show their bright colors when under other states of mind. Ankaramy are a greenish/gray at rest (most are) and turn bright pink with other states of mind. Ambanja usually keep some form of their coloration at rest, however brighten and show more extreme coloration during stress situations.mike brandt said:thanks for the responses. my cham is about 6-8 months old and shows some red in the face and front legs. i hope he starts showing more red. seems like he is more colorful when he's scared or sleeping. he is usually green with red but he will turn blue and red and green at times. when their color matures do they stay brighter all the time or just when they are in the mood?
