3rd Day:LOL: was a success as far as getting some new things in Chamlies home. Still not hand feeding and more interested in feeding then anything. She gets sad when she eats all 9 small crickets so I gave her four more and that seemed to peel her right up. I got one of her two plants placed in...

I've now had little Pepe for 4 weeks and we're still working on building trust, very slowly. Here's what I've tried so far: A few times I've left the door to his enclosure open while I sit about 5 feet away, facing away, but occasionally turning to check to make sure he wasn't trying to escape...

Hey guys, I been away awhile, had a new baby and a bunch of other stuff go down. So I had to leave the hobby among others. But I am back, and going to finish my large DIY enclosure, along with changing the plan, to a Madgascar Biome! SUMMARY IDEA The goal, 100% Naturalistic Vivarium! It will be...
Naturally, the new cham (name STILL undecided...I'm so indecisive on this it's ridiculous) and I are till setting into routines, still getting details tweaked, and improving the environment. I have been continuously sealing my reservoir bucket for Mistking with silicon, waiting patiently for it...
Holy shitake mushrooms what a whirlwind the past 2 days have been with this crazy little guy! Day 1 was all about making sure the basics were met, but of course still very exciting!! Everything from opening the box carefully, seeing him for the first time, getting him in his enclosure, getting...

I've been researching and preparing like a crazy person, but it still feels like this is happening ultra fast. Maybe it's just a product of doing so much reading on these forums and blogs, but I feel like I'll never be fully ready for this little guy coming tomorrow. That's also just my...
After doing tons of research I started looking into all the specs for getting my enclosure ready, and starting ordering and preparing. Here's some details... 1. Plants. I'm not known to have a green thumb, but I am determined to keep live plants live and happy in my enclosure to help with...
If I really started at the very beginning of this process I guess I'd start many months ago when I first had the initial idea to get a reptile as a pet. My family members rolled their eyes and made their usual comments about how I'm the weird one in the family. I just grinned in agreement...

Cage cleaning is an important aspect of husbandry but probably not everyones favorite. It is still as vital as humidity, temperature or nutrition for the healthy life of your chameleon. I have adapted my training at keeping a veterinary hospital cage clean to cleaning a chameleon habitat. Where...
Yesterday It was very hot, so i decided to take Leon out to get some sunshine. He used to not like It, Im just guessing it was because it was such an open space to be outside. I slowely transitioned him from his outside cage to his open box that has plants in it, if he wants he could get out...
Leon recently got some new leafs and a big vine. This isn’t any that big but it really makes his cage look full. Leon’s currently shedding and he’s not keen to changes so he’s extra moody. I know he’ll appreciate it and really like it soon though. Here are some pictures of him and his cage.

So I've seen some people talk about how they got their chameleons to "trust them", it seemed like fun so I thought I would do the same! I'm sure I've mentioned how i tamed Leon plenty of times before but this is just so I can have it all right here. So basically, I've read that you shouldn't...

It surprises me that nearly a year ago I got Leon, it feels like it was only a couple months. Leon is now one year old and in a month it will be our first year with him in my care! He's grown so much and he's doubled his size! His colors are so much brighter and he's definitely warmed up to me...
Here’s The hardest thing I have come across keeping fruit flies in the enclosure! I put a small piece of fruit in there but they keep on getting out and this raises a big concern because the babies need a supply of food at all times. I’ve heard of bean beetles being good feeders. Just really...
