We pride ourselves on individually-raising Ambilobe Panther Chameleons
Operating as usual
Uroplatus sikorae 1.1
Prepping for a discussion with Dillon Perron on his Animals at Home podcast. Check out his recent episode titled "Why I Have Changed My Mind About Reptile Keeping" (https://youtu.be/O54nOy8cX3o).
We plan to discuss some ethical questions that I have wrestled with in the chameleon hobby. Top-level we have these topics laid out:
Production rate/breeder count/flipping
Are there any gaps on that list? Something else you believe we should discuss? I'm excited to join Dillon and talk about the work we do from his ethical lens.
This is a prep post - I will share a link after our chat next week.
Lovin' this 4 month old male Ambilobe Panther Chameleon - F1 Manjaka x Lokana - M6.
M10 - Manjaka x Lokana. Another great 6 month old juvenile from this pairing :)
Great example of a juvenile YBBB Ambilobe Panther Chameleon @ 6 months of age. F1 Manjaka's offspring keep impressing us!
5 month old Ambilobe Panther Chameleon: M2 (Zava x Manjaya). This guy is a really interesting combination of WC Arlo (Manjaya's sire) and Zava. He has some of Arlo's white highlights and complex WC coloring w/ a bit more vibrancy from Zava. Definitely going to be a fun one to watch!
Charlie is a male Ambilobe Panther Chameleon we acquired with the intention to breed him; however, we have decided to let him go. His phenotype did not prove out to be included in any of our projects. He has a great disposition - nice pet quality rainbow!
6 month old Ambilobe Panther Chameleon: M1 (Zava x Nuhana)
4 month old Ambilobe Panther Chameleon: M5 (Tony x Paige)
4 month old Ambilobe Panther Chameleon: M8 (Tony x Paige)
4 month old Ambilobe Panther Chameleon: M2 (Tony x Paige). Gotta love the war paint he brings after getting annoyed with the camera a bit lol.
4 month old Ambilobe Panther Chameleon: M4 (Tony x Paige)
4 month old Ambilobe Panther Chameleon: M1 (Tony x Paige)
Inventory update! 3 brothers from Tony x Paige @ 4 months old.
Been a bit since I provided an update on our 4th gen breeder - Jackson.
Baby blue on yellow w/ a significant amount of red highlighting (borderline red rain). Many of his offspring have shown very similar traits. He is one of our most food motivated Panther Chameleons and he'll come charging towards the front of the cage whenever I open the door haha.
Papamavo, 5th gen iPardalis
If you ever wondered why we named Tony, Tony, his offspring are giving some clues 😛. His sister’s name is a dead giveaway. (Hint: those _____ stripes)

WC Miafina - fully acclimated and on her second clutch. I hope her genetic markers check out and her babies prove out! She’s a gorgeous creature ❤️
Ralph - great example of the rbbb Ambilobe phenotype
Manjaka x Lokana - M11 - 5-month-old Ambilobe Panther Chameleon
Manjaka x Lokana - M10 - 5-month-old Ambilobe Panther Chameleon
Manjaka x Lokana - M9 - 5-month-old Ambilobe Panther Chameleon
A few pics of one of our favorite Ambilobe Panther Chameleons - Papamavo (5th gen, iPardalis)
Manjaka x Lokana - M8 - 5-month-old Ambilobe Panther Chameleon
Manjaka x Lokana - M5 - 5-month-old Ambilobe Panther Chameleon
35 male Ambilobe Panther Chameleons, including some of the best YBBB of the year. Check out ipardalis.com/babies/available!
The male pictured is M12 from our F1 sire, Manjaka (we acquired Manjaka via Colorado Chameleon's WC Arlo x Perregrin clutch). M12 is one of twelve males who've all proved out extremely well for us. If you know anything about panther chameleons, that means his sisters are worth their weight in gold. Usually, you get to see one, maybe two, nice brothers. How about 20+ like we have proven out from this pairing?
Dehibe - Ghost's half brother from Arti x Alla. We got a second solid Yellow line off Arti :)
35 is the magic number :)
Second group from F1 Manjaka x Kromatisk (pictured bottom, photo credit Chromatic Chameleons) hit 4 months old. Tough to beat this ybbb Ambilobe combo outside our main projects. They’ve been very consistent!
Manjaka x Lokana M7 has these great mixed bars. There's a beautiful electric blue under magenta thing he has going on. Nice clean body to frame them. Just another gorgeous example of what this pairing has to offer!
Jackson x Imelda M1 has also started to really grow into his own. He has a decent amount of spice haha - it was really hard to get any other pose than the gaping beast mode. Whoever is lucky enough to see this in person when he is an adult, 🥰🥰🥰.
Tony x Paige - cage shots. Just chillin' with their mosses, lichens, field peas and winter rye. We're experimenting with a ton of different custodian species to keep these guys in balance.
3 weeks of growth means a lot! Check out how Jackson x Imelda M3 is progressing as he approaches 4 months old. Second pic was taken right around 3 months old on December 9th.
This quality yellow body blue bar (YBBB) Ambilobe Panther Chameleon is not easy to find - we have been working on this as our primary goal, and we devote more resources towards it than anyone.
Been awhile since we shared this guy because he is super shy, but he is at the end of one of our 5th gen trees. Which one is it? :)
Two flavors of Zava (https://ipardalis.com/blog/2021/03/21/zava/) between 3-5 months old. HMU 🤙🏿
I had a blast taking pictures of this goof ball (M4) and his brothers yesterday. They just hit 3 months old. It's our first group from Tony x Paige! Solid 5th gen group of YBBB Ambilobe Panther Chameleons. Flip through to watch how he wouldn't take his eye off the camera as I slowly spun his branch. As always, we're here to help you get setup for success. These guys are well-started juveniles.
How we do bioactive setups for hatchling Furcifer pardalis (Panther Chameleons). Field peas, winter rye, and Wandering Jew clippings w/ enough leaf litter to hide the CuC on top of ABG w/ drainage. The lattice is meant to mimic forest floor habitat near shrubs and fallen branches. These work very well for us. This is after just two weeks of growth. Usually have to trim every 3-4 weeks and let the CuC eat the clippings. Happy to chat about baby raising techniques. It has been a focus of ours from the beginning of our project.
Beautiful eggs from Bibi x Pepita (Papafee x Coco) - another solid F1 group from WC Bibi. His line is very secure :)
Captured a great sequence w/ Ghost (4th gen iPardalis, Arti x Daisy). I love the way this guy rests with a nice vibrant green and fires pure yellow. He is one of our cleanest yellow-bodied Ambilobe and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with him.

A close friend is leaving town and re-homed Natsu with us this weekend. Look at that yellow!! He’s from our 2019 Jude x Kako group.
This is a small project devoted to Ambilobe Panther Chameleons. It started with Flash (pictured) in our first generation, and has grown to include Flash’s children and grand children. The goal is to produce some of the industry’s best yellow body blue bar (YBBB) Ambilobes. They are individually raised and monitored to ensure they are well started. This is a personal passion of mine - I am happy to help others get involved with the hobby!
