    Rethinking veiled chameleon incubation?

    Totally valid points, and thanks for your insight! Here's what I'd ask in response. The thing is that we tend to give a pure sand/soil mix for chams to lay in, so no real underground architecture for them to explore like root balls or buried wood, rocks etc. I've found that when you mix in...

    Rethinking veiled chameleon incubation?

    I'm not sure how deep they're laid in the wild, but mounting evidence seems to suggest that many of the Madagascar species lay in very shallow holes, and veiled seem to lay pretty shallow too in captivity if given shallow laybins. So I don't know, but seems as if the whole ground insulation idea...

    Trioceros Ellioti being born and climbing already

    I love this species. I've seen every one of this female's births because she does it at clockwork at 7AM each time. It's not infrequent for her to wander out onto my hand during the process and drop a baby or two on me. This little one is climbing the second it breaks out of its membrane!

    Rethinking veiled chameleon incubation?

    Well see, that's the thing, it clearly works well and I've done it at the same temp and it works great. I'm not so much advocating for changing what we do already, but more bringing up that it would seem the way incubation is successful with this species is incongruent with what we believe the...

    Rethinking veiled chameleon incubation?

    Just a thought I had so wanted to bring it up in case others had any ideas. As we've learned more recently, the veiled chameleon seems to live in a more temperate, cooler environment than we once thought, folks like @PetNcs have made that pretty clear (at least in its homeland of Yemen, not...

    Some Trioceros Ellioti Photos

    Great to hear interest in them is growing! I produce them quite regularly so PM me if you are interested in the future. I have a couple pairs left currently.

    Some Trioceros Ellioti Photos

    Hello! I just felt it would be a good idea to share some pictures of a few of my CBB trioceros ellioti (elliot's chameleon). I'm noticing a couple of the bloodlines I have have very clear red or orange in both males and females. There's so much variation in them even from the same pairing. A...

    F. Campani receptive and non-gravid colors

    I didn't know there were any deremensis left in captivity! Are you in the US? If you want to work with ellioti, you can join our FB group "trioceros ellioti community" for a focus on them. I produce ellioti regularly so let me know if you'd like to start with CBB stock!

    F. Campani receptive and non-gravid colors

    Yes, based in the US. I'm not aware of anyone else working with campani either. The brighter images are actually of gravid females! Only one, the third picture, and the most recent picture I just added, are them in a receptive, non-gravid state.

    F. Campani receptive and non-gravid colors

    Hello! I've been a member here for a while but have mostly just posted on the facebook groups. As those groups can be tiring from time to time, I thought I would start posting here every now and then. I work with various species including T. Ellioti, T. Hoehnelii, F. Lateralis, C. P. Cristifer...

    Meller‘s Chameleon Care Sheet

    @PetNcs Hey Petr, thanks for putting this together! I am interested in why you do not recommend bioactive setups for melleri. Do you feel the same for other species too? Thanks!
