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...

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...

There is immense value in collaborating with other reptile communities - especially arboreal reptile communities! We are all trying to crack the code for arboreal reptile husbandry and each community comes at it from slightly different perspectives. By sharing experiences we find how much we...

This week I review one of my all time favorite chameleons - the Yellow-Crested Jackson's Chameleon! My first chameleon over 40 years ago was a Jackson's Chameleon and I have rarely been without one since. I have updated and significantly expanded the Care Guide I use on the Chameleon Academy...

Species with females that give live birth or viviparous can also pass unfertilized ova. These are often referred to as slugs. Sometimes they only pass slugs or give birth and pass some slugs at the same time. This is similar to chickens laying unfertilized eggs with out the shell. These are from...

My first prototype I was planning on using Exo-terra Nano glass cages for my baby cages but the supply chain issues we are all too familiar with made me get creative. Forum member, MeruJack, who I all but stalked on here when I was getting started used Nanos for her baby jacks and she had a...

Some inspirational thoughts for free ranging First, our living room is a large, bright (views on both sides) and pet free living room without small children walking around. Second, the free-range area is at exact the same spot as where a Reptibreeze XL (24´x24´x48´) stood. Many assume...

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 2021 now, so he should be...

There are at least three reasonable supplement schedules commonly in use these days. The one bit of advise I would give for all of them is to not over dust the feeders. Too much of a good thing is a bad thing. Your feeder insects should never look like powdered doughnuts or that scene from...

As I´ve seen many builds here, I´m still surprised how many people don´t use the enclosure space to it´s fullest, just saying every inch of space you use, is an inch more space for your chameleon. Building an enclosure with Dragon Strand is the easiest way, especially with the Dragon Ledges...

What to expect?! As a child I´ve always been fascinated with reptiles and amphibians, searching in local ponds for salamanders and bringing them home to keep them. Then my first reptile was an Iguana and I loved him, can write a complete book about him, even had some more reptiles including...

There are so many reasons why it is important for a Chameleon to trust their Keeper. As Humans we want them to love us the way we love them. But realistically this is not how your Chameleon is going to think of you. You are simply their Keeper. You are the provider of their needs. While I am a...
