This was our first clutch. Both parents, Flash and Judy, were sourced from Bruce Galbraith at Chameleon’s Paradise. Our hatch rate was ~50% and 4 of the babies did not make it to the 3 month mark. That was the baseline that we have tried to improve upon.
Female Fucifer pardalis (Panther Chameleons) will rock back and forth with their mouth agape in a defensive posture when they are not ready to mate. It is always good to introduce the female into the male’s enclosure to avoid injury to either animal because their body language is not for show.
