Nosy Be is an island off the north west coast of Madagascar. Males from the Nosy Be Panther chameleon locale typically display green, blue, yellow, and red colors. The body is typically green with darker green bars, although some males are blue with darker blue bars. The lips, especially at the rear of the mouth, are commonly yellow, as are the eye turrets in some individuals. Red often radiates over the eye turrets, and red speckling is also commonly present on the head and the body.
Nosy Be males share the red speckling of males from the adjacent Nosy Faly Panther chameleon locale, but they lack the white background color characteristic of Nosy Faly males.
