    The vet sent me...

    The vet sent me a sympathy card. How thoughtful of them, it was signed by everyone there. :-) Now that's a good vet. For y'all that don't know, my male veiled passed away a few days ago. I buried him in my garden with a piece of his branch from his cage. RIP El Chamino, I miss you!

    Yeah, I plan to give chameleons another try. Not for another year, at least, when the next Expo comes around so that I don't have to support Petsmart. I might wait until I'm done school, because I graduate from college this year and will be attending 2 universities in 2 provinces within the next...

    He was my only one. My first one. I've had him for about 2 or 3 months.

    My cham died! :-(

    So I called the vet and she said that they can open him up and look for obvious signs or send him away to a lab and have everything tested. She said that opening him up never really comes up with an answer for the smaller animals, and that sending him away is very expensive. Guess I'll never...

    Hi guys. I'm devasted. I woke up this morning to find El Chamino, my 7 month old male veiled died. He was still holding onto a branch, but down at the bottom of the cage. I am so stunned. He was doing great. The vet had nothing bad to say, he was eating, drinking, and everything was right...

    Friendly Chams?

    One thing I got when looking into getting my first cham was in a pamphlete from the vet. Inside there a "mini quiz" and it said if you want a reptile you can handle and play with a chameleon is not for you.

    Automated mister...

    I use the Habba mister for my veiled. I like it, it gives me piece of mind when i'm gona all day that he's getting some water/ It is noisy, but my cham doesn't care, he doesn't notice it at all. I like it for assurance, but not at all is it a decent mister

    Geez, I'll probably start breeding!! Thanks guys, very helpful! ...and yes, $1 each is really expensive!

    Thanks Ty! He only gets at most 1 silk a day right now, as they are $1 each where I get them. His urates have become a bit more liquidy, but he still gets 8 crickets a day as well. :-)

    Hey guys So searching through the forums, the only thing I consistantly find about silkworms are that they are good for dehydrated chams. I feed my veiled cham (Male) crickets and silk worms, and I'm just wondering what makes silkworms good, and what do they offer? My cham loves the silkies...

    I just offer silkworms and crickets. My man loves his silks, they're not in the cage more than 10 seconds before he has them eaten!
