The island of Reunion is an Indian Ocean island located off the east coast of Madagascar. Males from the Reunion Panther chameleon locale closely resemble males from Nosy Be, an island off the north west coast of Madagascar. It is thought that Panther chameleons were introduced to Reunion, and the similarity with individuals from the Nosy Be Panther chameleon locale indicate that this is where the original population founders came from.
