Chameleon Info: Your Chameleon - He is a veiled chameleon named Khalid. I got him on 7/21/19 at a local reptile Expo from Captive Bred Specialties. The seller told me he was 10 weeks old at the time of purchase. That would put his birthday at May 12th, 2019. It's May 2024 now, so he should be...

Hi and congratulations on having a beautiful girl veiled chameleon. These little sweeties are near and dear to my heart, and I’ve learned from some of the very best keepers on the forum how to care for them and effectively manage their reproductive health. Now I’m passing that knowledge on to...

If you have ever been to Petco or Petsmart and walked past the chameleon section, you will notice that they have the same size enclosure as all of the other reptiles. The pet stores don't understand that chameleons need to climb, they need to have ACTUAL plants, they need to be misted, they need...

Chameleon Hour
Hello Chameleon Wranglers! I would like to announce the launch of the Panther Chameleon Podcast! Whereas the Chameleon Academy is more exploratory (and will continue on), the Panther Chameleon Podcast is a tutorial outreach for keepers joining the community via getting a panther chameleon. It...
As a breeder, cage manufacturer, and educator there has been a growing struggle within me over how to deal with the difference between common breeder husbandry and the husbandry I am working to advance through my Chameleon Academy outreach. New ideas, such as fogging, are much more easily...

Chameleon Hour
I have been thinking a lot lately about our mission to give our chameleons a long, healthy life. We have come far in our husbandry! If I was asked the question, “how to give a chameleon a long life” I could easily spend a year going through everything we have talked about in eight seasons of...

Fogging is becoming a primary, if not only, hydration method for a number of chameleon keepers. Fogging replicates a cloud enveloping the chameleon in the early mornings of their natural habitat. The part which confounds us humans is that it appears that chameleons can be fully hydrated from...

So I will preface this by saying I am not an expert in chameleon lighting/UVB, and I know as much as anyone else who's studied Chameleon Academy and/or spoken with Todd at Light Your Reptiles about lighting setups. The evidence I found here is just my own, but I'd encourage anyone else with a...

This week I had Michael Nash (@javadi ) on the podcast and we talked about his experience with the number of Brookesia species he is working with. As he is breeding them he is the rare individual that can discuss their entire lifecycle. This week was a podcast episode, but Michael then came on...

Welcome to This Chameleon Life! In this week's Chameleon Hour video I took you along with me as I fueled up with some Chameleon Cold brew. I did not realize the controversy this would cause. I thought there was concern tht I was drinking cold brew concentrate directly and the intensity of...

Whenever we are presented with a new idea our first reactions are often either to reject it because it would be too much work to think about changing or to get unnaturally excited with the feeling of being on the cutting edge of techniques. And so it is useful to have a standard by which we will...

Chameleon Hour
One of the most incredible experiences for a chameleon enthusiast is to trek to Madagascar and see chameleons in the wild. I just returned from exactly that experience! My purpose was more than just to see how many species of chameleons I could rack up. I was going to feel the conditions and...
