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...

This weekend we focus on the theme of how newcomers come to the chameleon community. I am bringing on Julana Dizon who is the host of a reptile themed travel channel on YouTube. She has expressed an interest in getting a chameleon, but has not yet done the research. As she works with animal...

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...

"Help". "Need Help" and "Help Please", are not good thread titles. Give us something to go on before we open it and see we don't even know the species that you have. There are dozens possibly hundreds of pages of these titles. I really want to help people with their chameleons but I only have so...

Hello! So some people have seen, my girl is laying her first clutch. It is very tense in my house, as she has had MBD. Being friends with Sweet Pea’s owner has helped me immensely, however it does not take away every anxiety. My exotic vet and I talk quite frequently. He has helped with Kiwi’s...

I was a little concerned about Norbert the other day as he decided to not eat his normally favorite feeders. I have been increasing the dubias and decreasing the crickets and he decided he was going to wait on the supers. I don't give him many nor very often, but I think he was mad at me!! He...

I really like Bean Beetles, Callosobruchus maculatus, as a feeder for baby chameleons in combination with other feeders. I have used them to feed clutches of Jackson's, Hoehneli and know panther breeders who use them with success as well. I will discuss their care and use in the form of a pros...
