It’s Saturday morning, I’m out picking up coffee with my three year old daughter Nora. My wife calls me to tell me our cat just brought in a lizard, it’s still alive and it’s escaped into our bathroom. I say, “That’s pretty metal, what do we want to name the lizard?” We make an unexpected stop...

I will be exploring the link between excessive doses of oral vitamin D3 (hyper-vitaminosis) and the appearance of low vitamin A levels (hypo-vitaminosis ). There has been controversy in the past on wether or not it is safe to give vitamin A as retinol to chameleons versus only vitamin A from...

How did this Happen? D3 toxicity is possible in any chameleon fed excess supplementation. It is most common in Jackson's and other montane, high altitude chameleons, because of their slower metabolism but it happens to other species as well. This can easily happen to any new keeper if they have...
