Tools you will need:

1. Screwdrivers (not shown)
2. Miter box and saw
3. Sanding block (not shown)
4. 1" Machine screws and 1/2" self-tapping screws (not shown)
5. Staple gun and 1/2" staples

Ferdinand's Giant Outdoor Cage - Step 1: Formulate a Plan

Posted 08-09-2014 at 08:00 PM by Lathis

First things first - you need a plan. I sat down and listed what I wanted for an outdoor cage:

1. Collapsible without unscrewing anything.
2. Very light weight and easily moveable.
3. Weather resistant and maintenance free.
4. HUGE! With easy interior access.
5. Secure from birds and escape.
6. Self-supporting.
7. Sufficient for all-day but not overnight use.

Then, I made a list of everything I would need:

In my ongoing efforts to make Ferdinand the most spoiled chameleon in the history of chameleons, I decided that his outdoor enclosure was not nearly posh enough. This is my first blog post here, so I thought I would walk through the steps of Ferd's GOC. Here we go...

How to create an automated dripper.

Posted 07-23-2014 at 11:44 AM by Devokid

I have posted a few times recommending that chameleon owners set up an automated dripper for their chameleons so that they have access to plenty of water when you are not at home. I know pain of trying to dial in the gravity fed drippers, like the little dripper, and promise that this works infinitely better.

Supplies:
1) Tom's Aqua Lifter pump, or similar
2) Reservoir of some kind. (2 Liter bottle, 5 gal bucket w/ lid, etc.)
3) 1/4" drinking water tubing....

Veiled color maturaty

Posted 07-20-2014 at 01:42 PM by raedarr

My little guy was purchased from FL Chams. They said he was 4.5 months old. for the first month I had him, he wast either solid apple-green or twig-brown. One time he turned a solid pepto-pink and that was pretty cool. His patterning and color spectrum seemed to show up at about 6 months of age and increase in intensity up to the current time at 7.5 months of age. I have been told he will continue to mature up till about a year of age and he already is looking spectacular with his strips and spots,...
