    So once I finish my new vivs, I’ll have 2 empty XL Reptibreezes and a spare 36” by 18” by 36” tall screen Exo Terra over a 40 gallon breeder. Now here’s my dilemma, I want to get an Ambanja panther and either a Nosy Faly panther or a Cap Est/Masoala panther. For the Exo Terra, I want either a female carpet (furcifer lateralis lateralis) or a female veiled. So my questions are:
    Nosy Faly or Cap Est/Masoala?
    Carpet or veiled?
    (Keep in mind, I won’t get everything all at once or right now, I’ll make sure everything is set up and all care requirements are met before anything else)

    I may be a little biased, but we need more lateralis 'round these parts!! :D

    Carpets are way under appreciated!

    There’s always some female veileds that are in need of kind and loving homes. The girls can be very sweet and very beautiful!

    If only I had room for both a carpet and a veiled, along with space for all 3 types of panthers! Ideally, I’d have them all in vivs identical to the ones I’m building (and have room for maybe getting a Parsons one day!), but currently, I don’t have enough space where every cham is isolated from each other, so I must do this, instead. At least until I finish college and buy myself a farm with a reptile barn that has attached outdoor cham enclosures, along with a livestock barn, a shop, and a turtle pond, because who needs savings when you can spend all of your money on that!

    Are you interested in breeding lateralis? There are also minor, which I am going to be working with.

    It depends, I’d start with one and see if I have the time and money to breed, but probably not (at least at the moment). I know about the minor, but prefer the lateralis lateralis

    So don’t hate me, but I’m thinking Tamatave now instead of Masoala. I like the red with a little white more than the white with a little red. But I’m still deciding between a Tamatave and a Nosy Faly. So, if it’s okay with everyone, I’m going to update the poll, along with adding pictures to them, too.

    Okay, so I can’t edit the poll anymore, so I’ll post pictures here and just replace the Cap Est/Masoala with Tamatave in the poll, please.
    Male Nosy Faly (Picture 1)- from Screameleons
    Male Tamatave (Picture 2)- from Jungle Dragons on YouTube
    Female Carpet- furcifer lateralis lateralis (Picture 3)- I believe from Canvas Chameleons (google search)
    Female Veiled (Picture 4)- I used @jannb for this one, hope it’s okay!

    So I think I found a solution: I'll build 2 of my giant custom vivs for my 2 current male panthers, build 2 of my custom vis at their original size (30" by 30" by 60" tall of cham-usable space with an 18" bioactive substrate bin) for a male Tamatave and a male Ambanja panther, put a female carpet in the 36" by 18" by 36" screen Exo Terra over the 40 gallon breeder tank (bioactive, of course), put a female veiled in one ReptiBreeze XL and a male Nosy Faly panther in the other ReptiBreeze. Eventually, the carpet and veiled will go in the 30 by 30 by 60 custom vivs and I'll build 3 more giant ones for the Tamatave, Nosy Faly, and Ambanja to go into to. I think I'll get the veiled, Tamatave, and Ambanja first (not all at once or at the same time, don't worry), then work on getting the carpet and Nosy Faly (not all at once or at the same time, either). Thoughts?
