Booda's Day Out

Posted 04-30-2013 at 08:07 AM by LaughingCat (Day-to-day posts! Booda's Blog.)

Today started off as a normal day. Waking up early, turning on his lights and give him is breakfast and his morning misting. The day went on and I checked on him here and there. Nothing out of the norm, just the regular hissing and gaping as I misted and checked his temperatures, until I opened his cage and he darted for my hand like a little warrior, mouth agape and a battle cry!

Well, certainly I thought I was going to lose my finger to a 5-inch baby veiled, but I stopped panicking...

Dealing With The Loss of a Pet

Posted 04-24-2013 at 03:18 PM by jannb

I have been very sad having to deal with the loss of my chameleons. I feel like someone has ripped out my heart not just once but multiply times. At first I was in shock and denial then anger and depression. Since tax season is over I am staying busy to keep my mind off everything but its still so very hard. These guys have been a constant part of my life and brought me so much joy. I feel devastated by their loss. We buried the boys in our little grave yard beside the house. They each have markers...

Spring Lighting Schedule

Posted 04-12-2013 at 12:47 PM by Decadancin

So as Daylight Savings has arrived, it is time to rethink my lighting schedule. Days are getting longer, and this time of year I tend to have the doors and windows open. This can be a challenge keeping the humidity levels where I want, so along with my lighting times, I am also experimenting with misting schedules.

First off, the basic setup has not changed much. I have experimented with different wattage for basking, but other than that I am still using the Arcadia T5 HO quad fixture...

At first glance, Spinach may seem a good gutload choice. And it is, in small amounts from time to time. Spinach is a good source of Fiber, Protein, pro-formed Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Niacin, Zinc, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Copper and Manganese.

HOWEVER, Spinach (especially older leaves) is on all the Oxalic Acid and Goitrogenic lists. Meaning Spinach could interfere with calcium, iron and iodine absorption...
