    Can't add the video. Hope the picture shows sort of what she's doing.

    leg motion after laying eggs - worry or not?

    After I got her out of the plant, I took the plant out of the cage. I put her down at the bottom, dug out a little area, put a cover down like the past laying. She ended up digging under there at some point, but I didn't find any eggs in my first pass through of the dirt. I can look closer. I...

    leg motion after laying eggs - worry or not?

    FYI, this part was written before I found the eggs. ----------------------------- I have a vet ready on standby. I am trying to determine if this is "normal" or not. Pez has laid one clutch before (a few months ago), clutch of 66 eggs. I have reduced her food and temp to what was suggested...

    Here are two pictures I got. She looks a little puffed up, just because she isn't fond of my camera.

    Pez is starting to open her mouth, but isn't lifting her body up. It is only about 80 at her basking point, so it isn't "too hot" which is why I see online why she would open her mouth. We just took her into the vet on Tuesday and the vet was happy with how she looked, looked in her mouth...

    [For Sale] Plants for Chameleons

    good to know. I have a large bioactive enclosure, so about 6ft tall, 2 ft deep and 5ft wide. I would mostly want it in the ground, somewhere close to the middle, but only if it makes sense.... I have been looking for a rubber tree for so long, and seen it so many times as chameleon safe, that...

    Chameleon just took a bite out of his plant....

    Thank you so much. I am trying to learn, but when there is such variety of "safe lists" out there, it is hard to know. Thank you for your great reply and help. I so greatly appreciate it. :)

    Oh definitely. Unforunately, I am only referring to chameleon safe plant lists, and those vary as well. But yes, thank you so much for your help. :)

    Chameleon just took a bite out of his plant....

    Things like this confuse me.... Online it is mentioned veiled chameleons can eat fruit/veggies if they want, here people talk about giving them this and yet, I also see this being discouraged. What is the right answer? Can veiled chameleons have veggies/hibiscus flowers/fruits.

    [For Sale] Plants for Chameleons

    looking online and rubber tree sounds good for chameleons, yet on this forum, some say the sap is toxic. Is it safe or not? I know lots of stuff online is not recommended on this forum (for many reasons), but I don't know if the rubber tree is truly good for a chameleon. My veiled chameleon...

    Biggest cage

    Thanks. It's a great cage. Was just easier to make something that worked for the space we had, to give her the most we could.

    Biggest cage

    We've got a bioactive cage, made out of wood, 6 feet tall, 1.5 feet deep and 5 feet wide. Pez loves the space and plenty of room for plants. Being bioactive is so convenient especially with girls who have to lay eggs occasionally.

    husbantry help for veiled chameleon please

    Pez started eating her Boston Fern today. I grabbed her some broccoli and carrots and she ate some little pieces. She loved it. Then I realized some websites say "cooked carrots". Will a couple small pieces of raw carrots hurt her?? She's never eaten any fruit or veggie until today. And never...

    Yeah? She dug under the deeper area last time, so I'm hoping she does that again. I haven't been too happy with the bromeliads... I wonder if they would do better in the ground or in the pot....

    husbantry help for veiled chameleon please

    Thank you. I can only imagine so.... I never realized a cold blooded animal could have such attitude/personality. We got some wonderful chameleons from the breeder we picked, and funnily enough, we didn't think Pez was going to make it as she was so little and wouldn't eat at first. Is...

    husbantry help for veiled chameleon please

    Thank you. She was already starting to go from daily to every other day for food, but might still have been getting too much. It took a while to find the eggs, but I was amazed, just kept finding more and more... That was her first egg laying, do you think she'll lay in the same area each...

    husbantry help for veiled chameleon please

    So I moved Pez onto a tree so I could dig up her eggs. I had meant to do this earlier, but with yoshi and my kids taking this hard, it's taken a back burner. Pez (still living) laid eggs on August 14th and I found 66 today when I dug up her bioactive area. Yoshi (who passed away) had gotten...

    Thank you for all this. I really appreciate all the advice given here. This is what happened to her sister (https://www.chameleonforums.com/threads/yoshi-passed-pez-lives-on.184118/post-1688148), I am still not sure exactly why she is gone, but we were devastated to lose her. She was...
