    Amos and Fiona's unofficial scale-baby thread

    Oh yeah, he is still a total sweet heart. He knows the enclosure is big though and certain spots are hard for me to reach since I am short so he will occasionally give me trouble when I go to get him out just by going to those places. Little stinker haha. He is currently going through yet...

    Amos and Fiona's unofficial scale-baby thread

    Hey guys, It has been such a long time since I last posted about Ellear. He is doing well. I recently upgraded his enclosure to 90% live plants along with his mist king. Seems to enjoy it as he is much more active now then when we all moved in August. I had been struggling with keeping...

    Amos and Fiona's unofficial scale-baby thread

    I was thinking he looked a lot like Amos did too. Hoping he develops the same strong black accent colors that Amos had. We are Definately lucky. I originally had Amos's brother who would have been Ellear and Louie's uncle, but I lost him back in 2016 to some unknown illness. Broke my heart, so...

    Amos and Fiona's unofficial scale-baby thread

    I have fallen behind in my updates! Sorry everyone! Ellear is doing very well with me. He got to enjoy some sun time on my orange tree the other day and loved it! I also got my good camera out and was able to snap and edit a nice one of him. He has also become more bold and is willing to...

    Amos and Fiona's unofficial scale-baby thread

    Alright, jann requested I post my new addition on here but I have been slacking haha. This is a picture of Ellear (el-e-heir) when he arrived on Thursday. He is absolutely sweet as can be and I am so excited to have him with me. I have not weighed him yet but Jann had weighed him recently...

    Hi my first and very sad post.

    I am sorry to hear this. He sounds like he lived a good life. I can tell you about my experience with euthanizing my boy. I admit he was young and it was very sudden to have to do it but the vets did a wonderful job, even if they were urgent care vets and not the actual exotics vets. They...

    My Stanley has passed....

    No! I cannot believe Stanley passed. He was such a big part of the old chameleon forums when I was still active with Stanley's great nephew. It was so hard when I lost my darling boy too so I am familiar with the pain you are feeling. They were apart of a wonderful line of chameleons, so...

    I Lost My Little Elwood

    I like where Andee is going with sepsis, did they do a blood smear with the necropsy? If they did and saw bacteria in the blood smear then definitely something caused sepsis. I am so sorry you are left wondering though Jann. It's frustrating that the necropsy came up with no answers. Just...

    Minimum chameleon weight for breeding

    Generally speaking the chameleon community doesn't go off weight for breeding as much as we go off age where we recccomend the female be at least a year old and is otherwise healthy. No signs of MBD, eating, drinking and is of course receptive. I am sure one of the experienced breeders here...

    $400 Budget (For Now)

    I have to agree with some of the others. Make a spread sheet of ideally EVERYTHING you would like to get the chameleon plus the animal itself. When I first got into the hobby I was in high school and we had one as a class pet who I cared for over the summer. I went all out to spoil him (but even...

    I Lost My Little Elwood

    Oh no! I am so sorry for your loss Jann! It's terrible when you loose them, but it is always harder when they are young. I hope you get answers from the necropsy and will keep us updated as well for the sake of learning to prevent further deaths from whatever may have caused it. Again, I am...

    Dumeril's Boa- any experience anyone?

    I think they are a lot of fun, they have a beautiful iridescent sheen. Our male is usually the most active, but I think that is because the female hogs the hide so he has to sleep outside the hut and watch us. I want to say the female is about 6 feet, but she is definitely thick and because...

    Dumeril's Boa- any experience anyone?

    My boyfriend actually rescued a breeding pair of these guys last year. Kept in super rough conditions before that but they have really blossomed since he rescued them. The male has a strong feeding response and will strike at the glass if he has not been fed yet and see's a rat or even smells...

    Amos and Fiona Mated

    Congrats Jann! I am a little disappointed you didn't post about it on Facebook but this was certainly a nice little surprise for me to find on the forums :) Both parents look gorgeous and I cannot wait to see how the babies turn out color wise (we all know they will have the sweetest...

    My Kids Are Three Years Old April 13th

    Oh Jann, they are gorgeous as always. Hardly can tell if the cancer is bothering Andy. Makes me miss their brother Thalin, been almost a year since I lost him. Wish he would have made it to celebrate their birthday today. Would have been awesome to compare their colors to each other as he was...
