    Is gaping normal?

    resp tract infection Once when I had a cham with a resp tract infection she was gapping but also occasionally I could hear a little popping, crackling sound emanating from her (which is common if there is a resp infection). The vet said the sound was due to her breathing & was caused by small...

    Continued nail injury problems...

    My male cham has a strong grip, and at times while he's been climbing on the screened in his cage he's hung a nail or two & then pulled it/them out/injuring it/them to the point they wouldn't grow back. He's missing all three nails on one side of one back-foot and just now lost another nail on...

    Male veiled acting weird last few nights

    Well, don't feel bad because you can't do better till you know better. I made same/similar mistakes when I bought my first veiled, hope you can save yours in time.

    lets see pics of everyones rare species they are keeping or have kept...

    You Carpets and Cresteds are beautiful!!! I've been interested in Cresteds, but I'm afraid they are too difficult to keep. I have only veiled experience. I'm sure they are super expensive too, huh?

    Male veiled acting weird last few nights

    Here are all the questions that you need to answer so to get the appropriate help. I know there's a lot, but it's all important. I've cut and pasted it here for you from the "how to ask for help" thread in the "Health Clinic" area. Chameleon Info: Your Chameleon - The species, sex, and age...

    large panthers?

    Oh my gosh! I had no idea they could get that big! :eek: That really blows me away. :) I don't how old my male is, just know he's an adult. So... would around 200 grams be about average or normal for a male, or does it vary wildly from male to male?? I wasn't given an idea of what to expect...

    Male veiled acting weird last few nights

    That is "very strange", I'm pretty sure (from what little you mentioned) you need to make a LOT of changes to his husbandy, feeding etc... You came to the right place to find out what you need to do! You cham's already acting unhealthy/strange so you need to make the changes ASAP (now) or it...

    how often should i handle my chameleon?????

    You know they (in general) don't prefer to be handled and some hate it!!!! They can get super stressed if touch and held often and it can affect their health. So, if I were you I keep the handling down to a minimum, just to taking him out and putting him down fairly quickly. When you put him...

    my new cage and cham

    I have never heard of the spray. From what I can tell the dusting powder is recommended most here and like you said the calcium D3 only twice a month. There is a multivitamin brand named "Herptivite" which is often recommended on this forum and it was also recommended I purchase vita A (vita...

    large panthers?

    I wonder why some people buy 'wild caught' chameleons? I don't mean to start any arguments, but seems unnecessary since there's an abundance of breeders to purchase from? Just wondering...

    large panthers?

    Man, he's beautiful!!!!!:) I have a Veiled and he only weighs around 110 grams, which is a lot more than when I got him (already an adult) in January. He was ill when I got him, and was only 78 grams at that time:eek:! I wonder what the heavier Veilds weight? Anyone know?:rolleyes:
