In Reply to: Panther Cham color varieties posted by anson on April 09, 2003 at 15:19:51:
I found this at adcham.com:
"Diego Suarez: Found on the northern tip of Madagascar this morph is considered a red phase panther. They have red to green faces and red, green and orange to yellow stripes on there back. Normally relaxed an overall green with dark transversal bands ,when excited this chameleon can turn yellow with dark bands. Eye turrets are often burgundy and develop black and red patterns during social displays. The local population often refers them to as the yellow chameleon. Climate: wet summers and dry winters. 36-80 inches/yr. rainfall (90 cm). The change in rainfall /humidity levels may contribute to greater variation in diapause periods in egg incubation"
"Andapa: Southwest of Sambava, this plateau with an elevation of 1375 ft (419 m) has a heavy population of panthers. The color variants there generally resemble the reddish-green (morphs) from Sambava but often seem to have more yellow, especially when stressed. (B. Love, Vivarium 9(4)."
I can't really tell the morphs apart, as I am new to chams, but maybe one of those descriptions can help you. I'm sure that someone with more experience will read your post, and know for sure. :)
PS, he is GORGEOUS! He may not be a female Nosey Be as you thought, but you lucked out with an incredible animal!
