Why Captive Bred Nosy Be Panther Chameleons for sale?
The Nosy Be panther chameleon for sale has a reputation for being difficult to care for was originally given due to the poor condition of many wild-caught specimens as well as insufficient care practices. A Wild-caught Nosy Be panther chameleon for sale or any type of wild-caught chameleon can have some health concerns from the get-go, including having parasites, infections, dehydration and a stressed immunity from relocating from the wild habitat it once was living in. A wild-caught Nosy Be panther chameleon for sale cannot be properly aged and because of this, a seemingly healthy chameleon may be older than you think, and therefore may have a shorter lifespan simply do to the age the animal is when you purchase it.

Panther Chameleon color is a prominent feature of the Nosy Be chameleon for sale, and there is a wide range of amazingly unique colors being produced by some panther chameleon breeders, like us here at CBreptile.com. Some will be surprised to learn that despite misunderstanding and misinformation by television commercials and viral social media videos that the panther chameleon does not change color to instantly match any background it is placed against.
Panthers do exhibit color change, though, for a variety of reasons, including a method of communication, to better reflect heat or absorb radiant heat, and to blend in with their natural surroundings also known as the Nosy Be panther chameleon habitat.
Cage Selection and Size for Nosy Be Panther Chameleon
What we use for our Panthers is all-screen cages or cages with at least two screened sides (front/top, side/top) with otherwise 2 solid panels or walls (the front and one or both sides. The screen top provides ample airflow, increased water evaporation, lighter weight and a hotter basking spot without having to worry about overheating the entire environment since it is breathable with 2 screened open sides. If you live in a cooler or hotter climate, chances are you are using forced air and forced air heat which can dry your ambient air out. If you heat or cool your home the air can very dry, and chameleon cages featuring solid side and back walls will maintain humidity within the cage better than those that are completely open, as well as preventing the mist based water soaking your walls, or furniture in your home.
Inside the Nosy Be Panther Chameleon for sale Cage
Panthers are shrub and tree dwellers, so the captive environment must accommodate a life spent primarily above ground. It should appear lush, but not overgrown. There should be plenty of climbing paths made of branches, vines and/or plants. Plants play a critical role in providing a sense of security, so be sure one or two “areas of refuge” are provided.
Live or artificial plants can be used; the Nosy Be panther chameleons for sale will happily thrive among either. Live plants provide a more natural appearance and offer some humidity benefits. Some safe live plants commonly used are weeping fig trees, umbrella trees and Pothos.
Heat and Light for Your Nosy Be Panther Chameleons for sale
In our chameleon breeder buildings, we try our best to maintain an ambient day-time temperature of 75-78 degrees Fahrenheit, with a basking spot of 88 to 95 degrees in each enclosure. Nighttime temps are 70 to 75.
Locate the basking light on top of or suspended over one corner of the cage. Position a branch or vine directly below it, at a distance to achieve the proper basking temperature. As young panthers grow, the same perch that was once a safe distance from the heat source may become too close, so adjust as required. Monitor all temperatures with a thermometer, and watch for seasonal fluctuations. If your home gets cooler than 68 degrees at night, use a ceramic heat emitter to raise the nighttime temperature.
Water For Your Nosy Be Panther Chameleon for sale
Water provides Nosy Be panther chameleons for sale with three critical benefits: hydration, adequate relative humidity, and a way for them to keep their eyes clean. Providing them with water requires a different approach than with most terrestrial lizards. With very rare exceptions, Ambilobe panther chameleons for sale will not reliably drink from water dishes. Instead, they are attracted to water that moves and/or glistens. We provide this by misting and dripping the enclosure foliage, for all of our Ambilobe panther chameleons either manually or automatically.
While many keepers I have known over the years have succeeded in using a manual approach, I prefer automation. A good automatic rain system can provide humidity spikes and hydration throughout the day, even when you are away from home. If you choose to automate, research the available rain or mist systems on the market to see which one fits your panther’s needs the best. Mist King, Exo Terra, and Zoo Med all offer rain systems that vary in price, Mist king is by far the best and offers their own unique features.
The Nosy Be Panther for sale should be provided the chance for a thorough drink at least four times daily. Do this by setting a day by setting the duration on four or more mist cycles for up to five minutes. Of all misters, we prefer the mist king pro, with 9 total daily cycles. A setup like this: 2 being 4-5 minutes and the rest short spritzes of 30-60 seconds over the span of 8 hours per day. It’s important to allow the setup to dry out for the other 16 hours each day…. or by using a Zoo Med Little Dripper two to four times a day, dispensing the water at one to two drops per second so that the Nosy Be panther chameleon for sale has ample supply of hydration.
