Let's get started with Panther Chameleons!
This page is the record of me putting together a small breeding project for Ambilobe Panther Chameleons. I am specifically recording each and every step so you can follow along! I am recording this journey on the Chameleon Academy YouTube channel, The Chameleon Academy Podcast, and here on this page. So, you have a multi-media guide to choose from! Each outreach has a different feel to it. The video is educational, but has a heavy vlog feel to it where you can follow along in the steps I take. The podcast episode is much more detailed and instructional. And this page combines all the material in the written (digitally!) form. They all complement each other so you can have a well rounded walk through this exciting adventure of me selecting and caring for panther chameleons. This will be a long term story as I will chronicle an entire breeding lifecycle. I will start the summer of 2021 with three or four month old juveniles. Together we will explore the breeder options and make a locale selection. Then you can watch the process as I collect the required equipment and build up the cages. Once the juveniles are in their new homes we will discuss all aspects of their husbandry and care. Then, as mature adults, I will go over the breeding process and egg incubation. When the babies hatch I will go over effectively caring for a horde of baby chameleons, the process of selling them, and the considerations behind expanding the breeding program. You can follow along as this two year story unfolds! And, if you are thinking about getting a panther chameleon, feel free to do it along side me!
