    Butter update

    Not giving up. "She" is not giving up. I had been force feeding him for over a month, showering him twice a week, offering every type of feeder I could think of, but becoming more and more convinced that he was dying. Imagine my shock when he actually ate 2 jumbo silkies ! And ate another...

    Butter update

    Put Him On A Scale !!??? ARE YOU NUTS ? Butter would stand on a scale about as easily as trying to weigh a full size horse on your bathroom scale. Butter hates everything. Except his cage, and his plants and his own"space". I do "everything" right -- or as right as I know how. I...

    Butter update

    That's NORMAL ??!! Darned Lizard has been making me insane !!!! I was sure he was dying, and now there he is giving me his "I'm happy, because I hate you and everyone else in the universe" happy look. I"m just so glad he decided to eat again. What I don't get, is how he managed to stay...

    Butter update

    For the last month, Butter has been on a food strike. I don't know how he still is alive, but I managed every couple days to stuff worms or something in his mouth. a week ago, I gave up. I decided that I would put food in the cage, give him water and appropriate lighting and heat, and if...

    Help With Butter !!!!

    Thanks for asking. He is about the same. I fed him two big silkies last night. He acts like he is being tortured, but chews and swallows his wormies. I'm soaking the plants more with each misting -- and saw him sip from where the dripper is going....

    Help With Butter !!!!

    I have his basking lamp on a reiostat (you know a switch that you can change the intensity) and I keep the lamp on whatever I need to keep his basking spot at around the 90 point. I keep his branches a good 8-10" from the top, and he is not one to cling to the roof. Yes, it is uvb 5.0...

    Still no tounge action

    Butter still hasn't used his tounge to zap anything. I'm still hand feeding him silkies - by picking him up, which pisses him off, he opens his mouth, and I pop a wormie half way in his mouth, which he eats. How long should I keep this up ? His tounge isn't hanging out or anything, his...

    I used an organic potting soil from wal-mart as was suggested on this site. It has not been changed since he has been with me.

    dandelion inside chameleon cage

    I can't think of a reason not to put it in there. I don't use pesticides during the growing season, as I like to grow my veggies and fruit as organic as possible. So I let the dandelions grow in the garden, and pick them for the cham, and for the bunny. I just rinse and serve.

    Scooter is the name of my parrot. He came to me as a rescue, and came with the name. He knows his name, and uses it...and so do I !!!

    Do chams bite?

    I take Butter out of his cage now a couple times a week to take him outside to his outdoor condo. I think if I gave him the opportunity to bite me, he would. I catch him by picking him up gently, and then firmly holding his little head so he cant turn and bite. I let him dig his little toes...

    Where to keep cham

    I keep mine in my livingroom. His cage is in a corner, and has some plants around it, so he is not right in the middle of the room, or where people walk by all the time. Mine is caged, so I don't know about free rangeing.
