Prism, the Pet of the Day
Name: Prism
Age: Two years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Maoransetra Panther Chameleon
Home: Fremont, California, USA
   This is "Prism" and I think you'll see how he got his name - even though he was not colorful when we got him, as a youngster. Prism is a Maoransetra Panther Chameleon from Maoranetra, Madegascar. The panther chameleons from this region tend to be of a red variety. Prism has a lot of red, green, and even blue flecks. Shown here, he is ten months old, he hatched in August, 1999.

    Prism has a charming personality, can catch bugs that are a foot away from him using his retractable tongue, which is 2.5 times the length of his body, and enjoys hanging out on our vertical blinds in our living room. We are trying to get Prism to take a wife, but he seems to have no interest in women. Perhaps he's a late bloomer. Prism made the front page of our Fremont Newspaper when we had our annual reptile picnic. Visit Prism's website.
