This is a 4 1/2 month old panther chameleon and though I know what its supposed to be, I was wondering if any of you experts had any opinion as to its locale and why.

The yellow cheek-area def makes me think faly, along with the lighter markings. However, I think ColdbloodedAl might have the right idea with a cross... Those are some beautiful blues!

He's very young, but I would say Faly. Red takes longer to develop on some chameleons than others, it very well may pop up in two or so months, but right now he's very young. He doesn't look quite Nosy Be, or isn't what I would call a very obvious cross. He may just be a low-red Faly when it finally comes out more.

i keep comin back and looking and i think you might be right its tough but .....time will tell. or some background hunting on him i found the background from my male mitsio tracked him through two pet stores and another person and through two breeders aswell.lol i can be found out if you dont already know.

The answer...

I sure hope Olimpia is right because this little guy is supposed to be a nosy faly. He was hatched from a wild caught female back in December and I purchased him in February on a chance. The pics that I have seen of his sibling brothers all have red rain at this point except - of course - mine. I'll post pics as he develops and hopefully he'll end up looking like a faly.

Time will tell, he is still young so there is no definite answer here. I look forward to seeing this guy grow though so keep us updated:)

I would say hes a Faly. His reds should eventually catch up. Its strange how their colours develop from month to month. I think he looks great, and when the red comes in hes gonna look amazing! :D

He's still got over a year of coloring up to do! Can I ask where you got him from?

And i would have to say he looks Faly to me, just waiting on his red rain to poke through. It is definitely too early to give a complete answer~

When it comes to chameleons-- Patience is the name of the game:p

Looks Faly to me also. In fact he looks a lot like my male Sherlock. Chuck, why are you saying banja is in there? What are u seeing that we arent? No drama here just trrying to glean some info from someone who's bred alot more falys than I have. ;)
