    Looking for a second opinion on analyzing blood work

    Hello friends, So we took him back to the vet yesterday, and are doing a quote on quote kamikaze on his eyes since they still haven't fully gotten back to normal. We are doing ofloaxcin eye drops with serum from his blood (three times a day) along with baytril (once a day for 10-14 days)...

    Swollen vent? Impacted?

    I was able to get him into a vet yesterday. The lump has grown since last updated and it looks like it is actually an abscess that grew and not anything related to his hemipenes. The vet tried to get a sample and told me that all she found were some red bloods cells, neutrophils and sheets of...

    Swollen vent? Impacted?

    Hey friends, it's been awhile and recently I've noticed Renley's bulge has become rather large and I am unsure of whether or not it's natural or if his vent is actually ballooning due to impacting. He was having trouble expeling sperm plugs from his right hemipene about a month ago but I was...

    Direct light, vs. ambient light

    Although it may be not be perfect basking temperature/weather there are still rays of sunlight that radiate through the clouds and make it on to the chameleon. Therefore I would say that the little bit of real UV is better than the artificial we provide.

    Chameleon Fights

    First, Zen posted that video not Vinyonga. Second, that video is years old. Third, if you're keeping wild caught chameleons then they will most likely be more aggressive in behavior and placing two w.c males together would spark a fight.Territory to a chameleon doesn't necessarily mean just one...

    Discussion on color change?

    I was wondering if there was any discussion on here about the paper that came out in March 2015 on the panther chameleons use of photonic crystals to produce a rapid color change. Could anyone shed some light on this topic for me? Is unique to only the panther chameleon species? Does that mean...

    Spraying your Cham Directly when Misting?

    I make sure I spray my Panther chameleon directly everyday. I use warm water and spray my chameleons eyes gently with a stream of water so that he can rinse his eyes out. Also I will spray him directly multiple times if he's shedding.

    Medicating a Panther

    Easiest way to supplement a chameleon I have found is by holding the chameleon in one hand like the picture in the article Trace posted..I dont think a towel is very necessary, then use a plastic credit card to slip between the chameleons lips and gently push the jaw open. Then make sure you...

    Chameleon took a fall..possible broken arm

    His foot never looked swollen to me. Yeah I've got a specific Dr. in mind for this appointment that I will take him to. But there have been times in the past where I have thought his hindlegs were both swollen but that went away and was months ago.

    Chameleon took a fall..possible broken arm

    So last week Renley fell from his free range and landed in an upright position. I did not fully inspect him after the fall I just brought him back to his cage and watched his movements and he seemed to be alright. Today I was bringing him out to his free range and noticed a bump around his...
