Most people would not publish this story about parasites on their business page because most people are not ethical. We are. We are also trustworthy, reliable and our behavior is consistent in both public and private. We know this business is about relationships and optimal outcomes for these wonderful animals. That’s why we founded the project with an ethical goal in mind: individually-raised Furcifer pardalis (iPardalis). We believe that sharing information about our experience with parasites will not only help our customers keep their animals healthy, but it could help build awareness and promote preventative actions throughout the industry.
Introduction Given that Panther Chameleon (Furcifer pardalis) colors are polygenic traits, and Panther Chameleons are a sexually dimorphic species, selective breeding for a given color is challenging and many breeders fail to achieve a consistent result. If you are not familiar with what a polygenic trait is, you should probably start by reading our previous post about our Furcifer pardalis Body Color Inheritance Theory. Polygenic traits do not have discrete outcomes, and they produce a distribution of results.
TLDR; Most individuals have multiple body colors because the complete absence of a color is extremely rare. If a color is found in that locale, you usually can find at least some of it somewhere on every individual’s body from that locale. Offspring can have more of a given color than either of their parents (just like a human child can be taller than BOTH parents) Environmental factors, like being raised in groups vs raised individually, can have a significant impact on the color of the animal, just like height, eye color and disease resistance in humans (those are polygenic traits, too!
Imported by One World Exotica in June 2022. Bibi is a very vibrant wild caught (WC) Ambilobe panther chameleon. Bibidia translates to wild in Malagasy, which is why we named our two WC Bibi and Dia. Bibi has a decent amount of red on his face and blue bars with a vibrant green/yellow body. The yellow covers both his body and bars, so his bars almost look green at times.
Imported by One World Exotica in June 2022. Miafina is a wild caught (WC) Ambilobe Panther Chameleon. Miafina is derived from the Malagasy word for “mystery” because her phenotype is a complete mystery. We are very excited to prove her out with our WC Tratra who is an Ambilobe male without very much, if any, red highlighting. When we watch her sons develop, we’ll get an estimate for what she brings to the table besides fresh WC genetics!
Imported by One World Exotica Tratra is a classic wild caught (WC) Ambilobe panther chameleon. Tratra translates to “caught” in Malagasy, which complements our other two WC Bibi and WC Dia because bibidia translates to “wild” in Malagasy. After we failed to fully acclimate Dia, we decided to try again with Tratra. He has beautiful baby blue bars like our first CB holdback, Jude, and a nice consistent green body color.
Imported by One World Exotica in June 2022. Dia was our favorite WC import, between him and Bibi. He had a clean yellow body and his bars showed more blue as he settled in; however, he did not fully acclimate and we only got a few clutches from him. We did find him some top notch females from our line, so hopefully those great traits get worked into the gene pool!
This pairing was between our F1 sire from Colorado Chameleons, Manjaka, and our female from Chromatic Chameleons, Lokana. Lokana is a mix of Chromatic and Kammerflage Kreations yellow-bodied blue bar Ambilobe while Manjaka is a wonderful YBBB from a recent import, WC Arlo. The outcomes have been extremely consiste YBBB thus far which are not directly related to our main line of Ambilobe. They are a great option for people looking for high quality pairings with our multi-generational lines.
Robina is a female we acquired from Ramblin’ Exotics Clapton x Layla pairing. Her sire, Clapton, and dam sire, DynamiteTNT, both have phenomenal blue bars which I believe will complement Ralph’s really well. With any luck, a few Ralph clones could pop out because Robina is an RBBB x RBBB female. She has some interesting turquoise and subtle differences from most of my other females. She is awesome! Robina
Papamavo is one of our 5th generation Ambilobe breeders from Papafee x Lokana. He has great vibrancy and a solid yellow body. His attitude is a bit more feisty than his father, but he’s calming down a bit now as he reaches adulthood. We are excited to see what he does for us!
