Andapa -14.650000, 49.650000 Andapa, Antsiranana, Madagaskar (Directions)

Distribution of the local form Andapa:

Andapa is a city with approximately 20.000 inhabitants. It is located in northeast Madagascar at the end of the street that leads from Sambava and along Marojejy. Due to its remote location, Andapa is hardly visited by travelers and thus rather unknown. The city is surrounded by rainforest, rice fields and banana or coffee plantations. Almost everywhere in the vegetation here, you can find panther chameleons.

Appearance of the local form:

The male panther chameleons in and around Andapa often look similar to those from Sambava and Marojejy, but some are lemon yellow during mating season and when stressed.

Weight table

Gewichtstabelle Furcifer pardalis 2018

Gewicht = weight in grams, Kopf-Rumpf-Länge = snout-vent-length in cm, Weibchen = females, Männchen = males

Since 2015 we have been measuring the weights of chameleons we have found in Madagascar, as far as the animals (and our scales) are participating. So far there are only a few weights, in the long term an average weight in relation to the snout-vent-length It is important to know that all weights were measured towards the end of the rainy season (= best food supply), so they are probably maximum weights in Madagascar. Triangular symbols in females do not mean pregnant, round symbols mean pregnant. In the case of Furcifer pardalis, contrary to our original assumption, there have been no serious differences in the ratio of SVL to the weight of the individual local forms.

We have collected the data given above over several years with thermometers and hygrometers at the finding places of the chameleons. "Average temperature" means that values of a whole month have been calculated to one average value per month. For example all measured minimum temperature values of February have been calculated to one average minimum temperature for February. In plain language, this means single peak values of a day may be a little higher or lower than the average minimum and maximum temperatures. It is possible that a location has an average maximum temperature of 29°C, but one day during that month it had 33°C or even 35°C there.

More information will follow shortly.

Unfortunately, we have no UVB indices for Andapa available yet.
Unfortunately, we have no ground temperatures for Andapa available yet.


Since we have not been in Andapa for some years, we do not have up to date habitat pictures. Will follow soon!
