    How to recapture all escaped crickets!

    Consider glue pads as well. Used for trapping mice or other small pests, I have used them successfully placed in corners or under cage areas. With over 30 breeders we get more than a few escaped crickets - the pads won't get 'em all but they fill up fast! I don't like the idea of reusing...

    Respiratory Infection... bubble over feces?

    If you bought him from a reputable dealer, he should stand by what he sold you. Your chameleon didn't develop an URI in a week. Call the guy about the issue and try your best to treat at home. If things don't improve in a couple of days, trade him for another. You shouldn't have to spend a...

    Newbie looking for advice

    Glass aquariums are definitely not what you want but the exoterra offers a little airflow so you might be OK. If you had a Jacksons that required a lot of humidity an exoterra might be the way to go but since panthers and vields don't require so much humidity, a cheaper screen cage is great...

    How to attach the sticks

    If you wanted to try the hot glue gun, you can buy one at a hardware store for less than $20. I've tried thumb tacks, some of the branches will spin when your cham uses them. I wouldn't recommend using tacks.

    huge hornworm?!?!

    Soft bodied silk worms and hornworms don't pose the problem that hard bodied insect do so the space between the eyes rule can be tossed. I have fed very large hornworms and silkworms to my ADULT panthers - male and female - with no issues whatsoever. If in doubt then just let the hornworms...

    Nosy Faly baby fired up

    Had a faly hatch out about a month ago and have been raising him by himself - now the others are starting to hatch and he's not happy to share his enclosure. As babies, its funny how they are fine together for a couple of months but if kept alone for a few days - no matter how young - its zero...

    Zues first shed

    Nice Ambanja - you didn't get him from me did you (Steve @ the Jungle Panther)? It looks a lot like some of the Ambanjas that I produced a few months ago. Just curious - love the reds.

    Amazing colors 7 month old BB Ambilobe Panther

    He's a beauty! The cool thing about breeding Panthers is the diversity within a clutch. Leo was sired by Tarawa - pictured. Even when breeding blue bar to blue bar you'll get some red bars in the clutch. To twist the words of Forrest Gump: "Chameleons are like a box of chocolates, you never...
