Updated 03-08-2013 at 06:46 AM by Psychobunny

Today, I am so happy and excited because Smidget, my 7 month old Nosy Be male zapped a silkworm out of my hand for the very first time!
I have been working on taming him for so long, I was close to giving up. Now, I am so glad I didn't!

I learned a few interesting things with little Smidgie.

He was really puffing up, hissing and snapping at me when reaching my hand in, no matter how slowly.

I found it best to show him the silkie on my hand BEFORE...

Onion nutrients

Posted 01-20-2013 at 11:25 AM by sandrachameleon (SandraChameleon's Blog)

Onion provides carbs, B6, Folate, Potassium and Manganese, and Vitamin C. Spring onions, with the green tops as well as the bulbs, provide also some Thiamin, Riboflavin, Magnesium, Vitamin K, and Iron. Onion does contain goitrogens, but also some iodine so that helps balance it out. As well, Onion is higher in phosphorous than calcium, but that's ok you're only using it now and then as minor occassional part of your gutload.

Melleri, commonly called the Meller's Chameleon, or the Giant One-Horned Chameleon, is a behemoth among chameleon species. Melleri are one of the three largest species of chameleon, and for that reason they hold the interest and attention of many Chameleon keepers; both experienced and novice, alike. Despite the massive interest in this species, there is a lack of information on the web that caters to the beginning Melleri keeper.

On the market, the most frequent specimens available...
