Jonathan Hill is the founder of iPardalis, a chameleon breeding operation out of the USA that specializes in producing yellow and red-bodied Ambilobe panther chameleons (Furcifer pardalis). In this episode, Jonathan talks us through some incredibly important topics that are crucial when aiming to ethically produce animals. The topics include selling fertilized chameleon eggs, keeping babies in groups, screening for parasites, and imports/reptile flippers. We also spend some time discussing chameleon genetics, specifically the challenge of producing consistent-looking animals when working with A) complex, polygenetic traits and B) an unknown dam phenotype (female chameleons do not display the bright colors that males do).
