    Growth after neglect?

    I have a male veiled I rescued about six months ago from a poor environment. He had no water, no supplementation, inadequate lighting and only received a diet of meal worms. He was painfully thin and weighed 90 grams. The previous owner said he had him about a year, so I'm guessing he was around...

    The Four Stages of Shedding

    Four stages of a chameleon's shed: Stage 1: Chameleon becomes dull and dusky, owner realizes cham will shed soon and is wildly happy that stringent feeding/supplement/misting schedule is succeeding and chameleon is growing and healthy! Stage 2: Cham's appetite decreases and cham becomes less...

    Jewel tones!

    This is my new panther's first shed since I've had him, and now he has the most amazing jewel-tone turquoise with some emerald greens thrown in. Gotta love a rescue mutt!

    Is it possible to over-feed a juvenile?

    I've had my new juvenile panther a little over two weeks, and I have a question about his (many) feedings. He's about six months old now, and around 11" tip to tip. He was 53 grams when he arrived, and he's gained 19 grams in 16 days. He eats 15-20 crickets a day with a few dubia or a few...

    Young panther chewing sticks because...?

    I've had my new panther for four days, and today I noticed him chewing a stick (Nandina domestica). No other symptoms, eating like a champ and gaining weight. He is going for his baseline vet check Tuesday. I'm not really worried about it, just curious if this is something panthers do?

    Stunning Rescue Mutt

    I have wanted a panther since I learned panthers exist, and I was finally able to get my bucket list chameleon. I've never been able to afford a panther until I saw a post for rescues, and everything just fell into place. Since I knew he was rescued from a bad environment, and the post stated he...

    Climist timer

    I have had my Climist less than six months, and the timer is already malfunctioning. I unplugged it to reset it, and it goes dead whenever it's unplugged. How long do these timers usually last?

    Supplementation and shedding...too little, too much, or juuuust right?

    My fifteen-month-old male Jackson's is starting his third shed in six weeks. He has gained 16gm in the past month putting him at 135gm and a bit over 12". He starts shedding on his legs, then back/belly/tail, then head. About a week later the cycle starts over. My question is, does he need any...

    Cork bark bromeliad

    I finished my bromeliad project for Chaney's new condo! The tutorial was from Josh's Frogs. I couldn't find sphagnum moss, so I cut a pocket out of a coconut husk basket, nailed it in place, and tucked in some orchid moss to stabilize it. I harvested some Spanish moss from my oak trees to make...

    Perpetual shed

    My Jackson's (male) started shedding two weeks ago. He finished actively shedding about a week ago, save some stubborn shed around his horns. He's gained 16g in that time and today he started shedding again. As of today he's 131g and 13" long. My best guess on his age is 16 months. Should he...

    Chameleon tongue ...How freakin' cool is this?!

    I was shooting Boris eating butterworms and got these images. I had no idea their tongue (opens? unfolds?) into a sort of glove to help grab prey. I thought there was just a sticky blob at the end. These are very cropped so the quality isn't great, but you get the idea. So cool!!! (And...

    How to tell if your Jax is ready to leave the free-range.

    I moved around this blueberry bush several times trying to get portraits. Instead, I get Boris leaning out as far as he can reaching for my arm. Goofy little monkey.
