Latin name: Furcifer pardalis
Panther Chameleons have unique toes. On each foot, the five toes are fused into a group of two and a group of three, giving the foot a tong-like appearance. Panther Chameleons eyes have the upper and lower eyelids joined, with only a pinhole large enough for the pupil to see through. They can rotate and focus separately to observe two different objects simultaneously; their eyes move independently from each other.
Native Home: Panther Chameleons are found in the eastern and northern parts of Madagascar.
Size: Panther Chameleons can grow up to 8 in in length, and have a typical length of around 7 in. Females are smaller, at about half the size.
Diet: Panther Chameleonslive primarily on a diet of small insects. They also prey on centipedes, isopods, millipedes, spiders, lizards, small birds, and snails in their native habitat
Reproduction: Panther Chameleons females can lay between 10 and 40 eggs per clutch. Eggs typically hatch in 240 day
Lifespan: Panther Chameleons can live 7 to 8 years.
