Panther Chameleon and Their Color


New Member
What is the normal color of a panther cham when not stessed. My cham when crawling around his cage shows red around the throut and his body is green with blue strips. When he is basking he turns darker green and his tail curls up. He is not asleep because his eyes are open and looking around. Is this normal coloring and behavior?
In general they will brighten up when they are "excited". This can be anything from, seeing you, another cham, food, being sprayed, just to name a few.

The dark coloration under the light is an attempt to warm up. Think black shirt on a summer day, they are doing the same thing.

In time you will get to know your guys colors and personality.
