    Definitely support quality breeders but maybe check Craigslist first.

    Totally! In the end we’re just trying to give them all the best they deserve. Even if he has some issues, it would be good to get him back to health to live out the rest of his days happily! He’s not on his death bed, just lacking proper care and they say Chams can crash easily but hopefully...

    Didn’t mean to seem rude. Sorry. Just saying for responsible owners that are considering another chameleon then you can potentially help one in need out. If space is an issue then it shouldn’t be a consideration in the first place is all. I was just agreeing with you as for the potential...

    I understand that as well. I built a ground up enclosure for my veiled with all the fancy stuff. I also started keeping/breeding feeders. It’s a ton of work that goes into these animals but to me it is enjoyable. I work on things all day at work and love every second of it, this is no...

    I am lucky to be married to a vet tech so a lot of services are readily available to me but I would hope anyone who owns any type of animal for that matter would expect vet visits in their future just for the general well being of the animal. I definitely agree this should only be for...

    I adopted a veiled that couldn’t be properly cared for at the beginning of the year with no in depth knowledge of Chameleon’s myself. In the first 48 hours I had pretty much burned out my brain and bank account while absorbing all the knowledge I could to take care of the chameleon properly and...

    Ground up enclosure

    You’ve got to be kidding me about the hammock? Their enclosures are made ENTIRELY of steel or aluminum mesh sometimes, I don’t see how that makes any sense. The piece of lucky bamboo has one leaf on it and has been with her since the beginning, she has never touched it. I took the second...

    Ground up enclosure

    Finally have a livable enclosure for her. Still a little rough around the edges but I moved her in last night and she seems to really enjoy it. I will be taking a little break from out to wrap my head on exactly how I want to lay out the base and how I’m going to do the permanent floor for the...

    Ground up enclosure

    Yeah we have 2 Pothos right now. I just picked up the bamboo randomly because they were cheap. Margee definitely eats plenty of Pothos leaves in her current enclosure

    Ground up enclosure

    Got a few things done this weekend. Still definitely a work in progress but I am pretty much done with the frame of the enclosure besides cleaning up a lot of stuff and continuing to layer the background. I installed the light fixture and picked up a few plants this weekend. Not sure if they...

    Ground up enclosure

    I grabbed what was readily available at my local hardware store instead of waiting to ship the black spray foam. I started with silicone and coconut fiber tonight and quickly realized that is not the way to do it for a large enclosure that will need many layers to block the yellow and will be...

    Ground up enclosure

    Made a little progress today on the enclosure. Haven’t had much time all week to work on it

    Help with building cage

    I am sure you’re father in law could work out a great enclosure in no time since he is a builder and he would be a great resource if you get hung up. I have zero woodworking skills compared to friends of mine who are builders but I’m a mechanic and love putting things together and taking them...

    When your dad breaks your dragonstrand drainage tray..

    That’s a shame those are so expensive and break so easily. Surely you could source a non chameleon specific tray for way cheaper

    Ground up enclosure

    I guess I forgot to mention that I do intend for my enclosure to be easily removable or on sliders to get underneath for easy cleaning

    Ground up enclosure

    I used a shower pan liner, shower drain and silicone. I made a light duty shower pan that extends the full length of the base in case I decide to get another chameleon and need a side by side enclosure. It drains into a bucket I won’t have to see that sits beside my feeders and behind the mist...
