    To get an Idea of what people have floating around. Hopefully be a nice reference to see differences and variations of WCs.You don't have to just post Furcifer pardalis "panthers" either. All WCs welcome.

    Ill start off with My Ambilobe. He has scar on face/lip and was missing few scales. I have 40 eggs sired by him incubating now.

    This is Sjakie, probably pronounced Jack in English LOL, my 8 month old WC Oustalets male. He is with me now for about a good one and a half months

    This is Fred, named after Fred Flinstone, WC F. verrucosus semicristatus or Fort Dauphin region. He is almost about 24 months old.

    yep they're carpets. tops my male bottom was my female. I only have the male left. I gave the female to a friend Martin down the street from me, and I lost a pair over the summer :(. I may ask for her back, if I decide i wanted to try breeding them again this year.


    Yep common and scientific, you got it!!

    Thanks. Hes not a Boraha though, he is Cap Est. You will see the difference once his reds are back in!

    Boraha are grey, with light grey barring and a little bit of red/orange aound the tail base, very similar to how he looks at the moment actually but grey instead of white. Theyre also darker grey when relaxed. Cap Est are white with blood red barring across the whole body and have a hint of blue when relaxed.

    That is not a Furcifer verrucosus semicristatus. To the best of my knowledge Semicristatus have got and are known as Red Head Verrucosus.

    Hmmm Motherlode Chameleon, the store i bought him from sold him to me saying this is the Fort Dauphin variety. I thought that that ment that those animals are semicristatus.
    It doesn't matter to me though, i love my Fred. He is a verrucosus verrucosus then.
    But thanks for letting me know!

    Here's a good link that shows the locals of Verrucosus. The Semicristatus Verrucosus is the red headed Verrucosus on the bottom.

    My Nosy Mitsio, Pete, is wild caught.
    He has a thread on the forums:
    https://www.chameleonforums.com/pete-nosy-mitsio-74431/

    I also have a wild caught Tamatave and a wild caught Faly (pics below).
    I was skeptical the first time I purchased a wild caught chameleon, but all of my wc's have turned out to be awesome. They are some of my favorites.

    If you choose to purchase a wild caught chameleon, please be diligent in checking its health prior to introducing it in the room with the rest of your chameleons. I did receive a female with a fatal fungal condition once, but fortunately I screened her at the vet before bringing her home and we were able to catch the problem before it potentially had a chance to affect any of my other chameleons. But, rare instances like that aside, wild caughts are great additions to any collection.
