    Swollen foot

    My Jackson's is missing a few claws--i don't know how. He has a ReptiBreeze cage (all mesh) and his perches are repti-rope. I never handle him, but my sister claims he "crawls right into her hand" whenever she visits (which is bogus because he's super shy), so I'm thinking that maybe he lost a...

    genitals?

    Ok, so, i have never seen my Jackson's pooping. I have seen the poop, but not the actual process. I walked in on it one day, and it was kinda horrifying. There were these two long, skinny, dark red things coming out of each side of his butt, and they each had a white thing on top of them. I'm...

    petco is horrible!

    :( A man came in today to get crickets for a baby Jackson's he had bought from a friend. He told me it was no more than an inch and a half long with its tail. He was keeping it in a tupperware. No UVB, no heat, no room. A tupperware, some sticks, and a hand-mister. I almost fainted. I told him...

    petco is horrible!

    sad This is so true. I work at a pet store and that is where I rescued my Jackson's from. He only had a water bowl and a stick. I had never ever had a cham before, but I read up on it and got all the right things for him, and now I am much more knowledgeable about their care and needs. I have a...

    Dead feeder technique?

    He usually eats up to four cabbage butterflies (or) 3-4 crickets or grasshoppers. I also throw a superworm or two in about once a week. I was worried that he was underfed because he looks so skinny compared to a female i had seen, but i believe you helped clear that up in a different post. I was...

    So skinny!!!

    Oh, wow, thank you!!! So, how much exactly should I feed him every day? I feel so silly, as feeding is such a basic and vital concept, but I figure it's better to ask and look silly than to not ask and have an ill animal.

    Dead feeder technique?

    This is true, I suppose I never thought of it, obvious as it is. Sighh, I just wanna give him as much variety as, well, as I can afford I guess :(

    Dead feeder technique?

    I haven't tried a feeding cup. I put the pupa on a white tupperware container and rested it atop some of the branches, in case he was just performance-shy. Yeah, that's what I figured about the string/hair as well, I was just wondering if anyone else had a suggestion that I'd never heard of.

    So skinny!!!

    Hello My Jackson's (age unknown) looks so skinny sometimes. I'll go in in the morning and his entire torso looks like an even, skinny cyllinder. The skin on his stomach will have wrinkles and little folds. I look down, and there is a HUGE pile of poo at the bottom that hadn't been there last...

    Dead feeder technique?

    Hello, My Jackson's is very very picky about his food. He will only eat very fluttery things (butterflies, moths) or very active bugs (prefers grasshoppers to crickets). With winter around the corner, I will be unable to catch him his favorite foods, and his diet will be limited to crickets...

    Monsoon rs400 Mister

    I looked into aquazamps, and they do look incredible. I am looking at either the Premium Collector Misting Nozzle System or the Premium RainDome System (the Premium Keeper Misting Nozzle System is out of stock). Which one would be better for Mr. Colors? He is a Jackson's cham in a 18x18x36 inch...

    Monsoon rs400 Mister

    Hello I just bought a Monsoon rs400 mister. Is this a good one? From the reviews I've seen online, the only issue seems to be that water sometimes gets into the timer wiring and busts it... Is there a better one that anyone knows of, or is this one fairly good? Any tips for maintenance or...

    Fruits and Veggies for Jackson???

    I have read many places that Veileds enjoy fruits and veggies, but I have never seen anything either way about Jacksons. My Mr. Colors is on a hunger-strike, and I am trying everything I can think of. Are fruits and veggies (and if so, which ones?) something that Jacksons would/should eat the...

    Hunger Strike!

    As he is no longer eating crickets, he has not been getting D3. All I have to mist him is a spray bottle. Maybe if I got some sort of removable tray to empty the water out of every day for the bottom, I could get a mister?? I'm not sure what route to go with this. My sister is supposed to be...

    Hunger Strike!

    My Jackson chameleon won't eat ANYTHING! He got bored with crickets, so I started mixing in some mealworms. He wouldn't eat those because they wouldn't crawl up the screen (sigh), so I tried superworms. I know that they are quite fatty, so I tried to space out his eating them, but very soon he...
