    What does r/chameleons have against the chameleon forums?

    Their point was that every chameleon could and should be trained to drink out of a glass and that watering in other ways was unnecessary because of this. They had a picture of a veiled chameleon just sitting on a table lapping out of a glass. It didn't look great. I'm sure some chameleons would...

    What does r/chameleons have against the chameleon forums?

    I had a similar problem on Reddit. They basically told me not to reference this site because it takes away from theirs, which kinda makes sense. But then they also said that everyone here were purists and weren't open to new ideas and that this site was more considered about making money than...

    College & Chameleon Advice

    I'm also an undergrad student with chameleons. This summer I moved my chameleons from the house I was staying in to an apartment, but its only a ten minute drive so it wasn't too big of an ordeal. Previously one of the chameleons I had bought at a reptile show while I was home for spring break...

    Ants in Terrarium?

    I was trying to think of something to bait them with that I could put in something like a water bottle to remove them manually. I don't have any cucumber, but I do have sugar. I might give that a try when I get home.

    Ants in Terrarium?

    So I guess I'll really only be concerned if they form a colony and if it gets large. I'll put some liquid ant traps down outside of the cage, though so far I've only seen them inside. Also, my girlfriend isn't a huge fan of having ants in our apartment.

    Ants in Terrarium?

    I moved into an apartment, and yesterday was moving my male Hoehnelii's planted terrarium into the apartment. I noticed some small ants. The place I lived before I shared with other people and it was a bit dirty and had some ants running around. I thought that a few must have just made its way...

    Question about FL Chams safe plant list

    Back to the gaping thing, I just did a presentation on thermoregulation in reptiles. Gaping is used by reptiles to cool off as the open mouth increases surface area for heat to dissipate, and if they increase their ventilation rate then they also cool down more due to evaporative cooling from...

    Keeping Dubias

    I tried heat mats before, but only the glass felt warm. It didn't carry up into the egg crates, which is why I like the lightbulb better. My roaches weren't reproducing at all and none ever molted with the heat mats. Nothing happened for a couple months. Right after I switched to the light bulbs...

    Keeping Dubias

    I keep my dubia colony in a regular 29 gallon aquarium. It has egg crates, a screen lid, and for heat I use a 100 watt red bulb because I read somewhere that roaches can't see light in the red wavelength. It doesn't seem to bother them. I water them with water crystals and feed them with a...

    Cabbage White(pieris rapae)?

    Has anyone tried using cabbage white caterpillars as feeders? They were all over our broccoli plants last year, and since our garden wasn't sprayed with anything, I fed some to my Veiled Chameleon. He really enjoyed them. I eventually just started catching the butterflies that were around and...
