    Funny, I watched the same Earth series and I was shocked to hear him say that chameleons could change colors to match their surroundings. I told my daughter that I was surprised that BBC got it wrong..

    Penelope hates to be misted

    Sorry, Penelope is a veiled chameleon. I guess I am use to Rebel (my full grown male veiled). He will walk up to the mist and put his face in the spray and sit and drink. Her urates are nice and white but I know how fast they can become dehydrated and I am a worry wort. Thanks for the reply..:D

    Penelope hates to be misted

    Since misting seems to causes Penelope to run and hide today I decided to give Penelope a shower. Because she hates to be misted I worry that she is not getting enough to drink. Rebel loves his showers and will drink the whole time hes taking one so I though maybe Penelope might as well...

    When to cut back on female veiled's food

    Jann, sorry it took me so long to post these pictures and that they are not the best. Penelope really hates me as well as my phone.:eek: lol She is a great eater and is very active. I tried my best to get a measurement. She is aprox. 4 inches from nose to vent. Thanks, Virginia

    Fake vines with leaves and flowers

    I see a lot of set ups with lots of vines with leaves and sometimes flowers. Where does one get these? I need more coverage for my male veiled and the pet stores want way to much for the ones that look bad. I just want to add leaves a color that Rebel won't eat. He loves his greens and his...

    When to cut back on female veiled's food

    Thanks so much Jann. I will try and get a good picture of Penelope tomorrow when I get home from work. Is cutting back to every other day OK or does it need to be every third day? Right now her basking spot ranges from 80-83*. I try to keep it at 80* but it depends on the weather and if I...

    When to cut back on female veiled's food

    Plant for eating

    I picked up a hibiscus and I have a 6500K compact florescent bulb on top of my screen enclosure and mine has been alive for over a year. It doesn't bloom a lot but it is growing and my veiled loves eating the leaves. I think he eats the buds before they can mature and bloom..My cage does set...
