I am a complete novice. I have never owned a single pet on my own before. I only grew up with cats and dogs, never any reptiles...so this is a totally new adventure for me. Chameleons have a reputation for being advanced and high maintenance for a good reason. I think I started this blog to tell my story, but it's just a story. Hundreds of hours of research have gone into the total picture of the care for my chameleon, but this is my first and only chameleon.
