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...

I chose this Claude Adrien Helvetius quote as the title for my blog on foggers due to the current debate about their use. I decided not to edit my previous blog on misting https://www.chameleonforums.com/blogs/basic-info-on-misting-and-fogging.2325/ because the information is still relevant and...

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...

This is a controversial topic, and so I want to preface this with a quick memo... This post is just a product of my experience with my first chameleon ever. I'm in no way, shape, or form, an experienced keeper. I am in no way, shape, or form an expert. I write my blog posts a little bit for the...

First off, if you haven't already heard this, you've got to do lots of research about all aspects of chameleon care before you're really ready to get a chameleon. If you're thinking, "it's okay, I can just get one and figure it out along the way," then you are doing it wrong and you will most...

It’s been too long and boy how Chamlie has grown. She definitely shows us her personality and she is definitely a desert chameleon, she gets so upset when it’s not hot hot in her cage and she just loves the heat. I have been working on getting more in her home like the other plant and continue...

The past few months I've been focusing my love for Pepe towards his cage upgrade (and a few other small details), and I think today I finally reached a point of completion. I'll definitely give the details (and pics) needed for anyone who might be going through the same stages in chameleon care...
It’s been awhile. My sister moved out of our house and I got to take over her bedroom. This means that I finally have a window that works! Which also means, Leon can climb on the new pothos plant that hangs right infront if the window, all on the curtains, and if he wants he can climb from there...

Chamlie has definitely let her personality shine, she does not like us much unless we have food. She adores the dogs and will go where ever she can in her home to watch the dogs it’s actully quite funny. I would say her favorite things to do are hang/watch the dogs,eatting and when it’s...
