Baby Steps...
I've now had little Pepe for 4 weeks and we're still working on building trust, very slowly. Here's what I've tried so far: A few times I've left the door to his enclosure open while I sit about 5 feet away, facing away, but occasionally turning to check to make sure he wasn't trying to escape...

Continuing Setup and Preparing (Juvi coming tomorrow!)
I've been researching and preparing like a crazy person, but it still feels like this is happening ultra fast. Maybe it's just a product of doing so much reading on these forums and blogs, but I feel like I'll never be fully ready for this little guy coming tomorrow. That's also just my...

Adventures getting my setup started...story time...
After doing tons of research I started looking into all the specs for getting my enclosure ready, and starting ordering and preparing. Here's some details... 1. Plants. I'm not known to have a green thumb, but I am determined to keep live plants live and happy in my enclosure to help with...
My story into this hobby...with the obligatory research speech.
If I really started at the very beginning of this process I guess I'd start many months ago when I first had the initial idea to get a reptile as a pet. My family members rolled their eyes and made their usual comments about how I'm the weird one in the family. I just grinned in agreement...

Cute pics on a hot day
Yesterday It was very hot, so i decided to take Leon out to get some sunshine. He used to not like It, Im just guessing it was because it was such an open space to be outside. I slowely transitioned him from his outside cage to his open box that has plants in it, if he wants he could get out...
Leon got a new vine and leafs
Leon recently got some new leafs and a big vine. This isn’t any that big but it really makes his cage look full. Leon’s currently shedding and he’s not keen to changes so he’s extra moody. I know he’ll appreciate it and really like it soon though. Here are some pictures of him and his cage.
Trust
So I've seen some people talk about how they got their chameleons to "trust them", it seemed like fun so I thought I would do the same! I'm sure I've mentioned how i tamed Leon plenty of times before but this is just so I can have it all right here. So basically, I've read that you shouldn't...

Is it O.K. to Handle my Chameleon?
So this is a common question for new keepers. Often they will be attacked when mentioning that their chameleon likes to be handled. Sometimes this is warranted, but sometimes not. All too often new keepers think what they are witnessing is cute or that the chameleon "wants" to be handled...

Basic info on Misting and fogging...
  • Featured
Of course, all animals require water to survive, and it isn't as simple as placing a bowl in the bottom and calling it a day. In fact, with most chameleons this will have little, if any benefit. Most chain pet stores display their chameleons with a water bowl, and this can be misleading to the...
