Worried about new panther


New Member

Purchased a baby ambilobie panther on Monday. Hes about 4 months old I think.

The day I got him he looked a nice healthy colour but the last day or so he has changed. Hes eating like a horse and pooping ok.

When in his viv he sits on a black vine and turns almost black and doesn't spend much time basking under the light. (exo terra sunray 50w) He has started to go white in places mainly where his tail meats his body.

When i get him out he seems to turn a nice colour again but still has the white patches. Im sure its not just shedding

Please help
Yeah, could be he's just trying to get settled in. I would fill out the health care sheet and post that though too. Pictures will help as well if you can. :D
