    Rescuing a baby veiled any advice would help

    Someone posted in a local pet group they are looking to rehome a baby veiled chameleon. I asked for pictures and was instantly sick to see the poor baby the way it was. I'm going to pick him up tomorrow but was wondering if there was any advice you guys could give me to rehabilitate this poor...

    female jackson's lifespan.

    so it is pretty normal for her sheds to be kind of random And as you said "partial"? she always seems to have some part of her body shedding. also, what kind of issues could be associated with her pooping issues? it's not all the time but has occurred a couple times within the past month or so.

    female jackson's lifespan.

I'm having a hard time finding anything concrete about the lifespan of female jacksons. everything i find is for males followed by a vague comment somewhere along the lines of "females don't live as long" has anyone had experience with them? my girl is a couple months over two years...

    Hard bumps on female Jackson hind leg

    Yes but they are an hour drive away And as i stated before she is very very very sensitive to stress. And this is not even an exaggeration she quit eating for a week when i removed a dying plant from her enclosure. I brought her to bask in natural sunlight and she became stiff as a board and she...

    Hard bumps on female Jackson hind leg

    It just becomes extremely frustrating. You have to understand that. I see it all the time where someone is asking a question and people respond with unhelpful information just to show they know something it seems. It's especially frustrating when it has Already been explained why the bump in d3...

    Hard bumps on female Jackson hind leg

    People have to realize that not every case is the same. Chiming in with regurgitated info is not helpful in any way. Yes, the suggested supplementation of d3 is monthly. But if your cham is not metabolizing the calcium, more d3 might be the answer as it promotes calcium absorbtion. Please know...

    It was suggested to supplement more for a short time to support calcium absorption by a exotic animal vet since mbd was taken into consideration. I have recently switched back to her normal regiment as mbd does not seem to be the issue.

    It has also been sitting in a little puddle of water all day i can try to get a better one in the morning. Those little brown specs come and go and was told it can be diet related especially with gut loading. I have no doubt she gets enough water as i have a mistking at 3 5 minute intervals and...

    Hard bumps on female Jackson hind leg

    i have a t8 linear uvb 5 (going to get a 10 next month) i upped the d3 a tad because of the mbd scare and is necessary for calcium absorption, and being a montane species wasn't sure if the 5.0 was providing enough for absorption (this is advice given per an exotic animal vet to a friend who was...

    Hard bumps on female Jackson hind leg

    I have not had her tested. Nothing has raised any alarms in regards to parasites so i haven't considered it. I have been reluctant to bring her in as i feel it might do more harm than good. She is a sweetheart but suuuuuuper sensitive to everything. She will stop eating if i even look at her wrong
