    Chameleon anatomy - something strange on xray

    Hi there, I was wondering if anyone had any knowledge, or could point me in the direction of any publications detailing chameleon anatomy? I've had my veiled chameleon for about 18 months, he's now around 2 years old. He came to me with advanced MBD with severe pathalogical fractures...

    Pygmy advice?

    Hi, I've got a chameleon, he's an almost 2 year old Yemen called Colin, who I've had a lot of issues with (took him on with malnutrition, dehydration, chronic infection and advanced MBD). I knew I wanted a cham at some point in the future, but hadn't got around to doing any research yet, and...

    Burn? If so, what are the implications...

    Hi, I've had my veiled cham for approx 9 months now, he's about a year and a half old. I've recently moved house, and was floating around for 3 weeks between tenancies, so I boarded Colin the Chameleon at a small animal and reptile boarding place. He was very well cared for there, they even...

    Calcium RDA Question

    Hi, I have a 1 year old male veiled, who I have had for 6 months after taking him on with severe MBD. He had another round of xrays today, and his bone density has hugely improved :D He's currently on an increased dose of liquid calcium for his MBD, but will soon be able to be reduced...

    Diurnal rhythm and hunger strike?

    Hi, So, the clocks went forward last week - and my little dude has been eating less and less since the beginning of this week and is eating very little at the moment - could this be related to the clock changes throwing his diurnal rhythm out of whack? If anyone else has experienced this...

    heat/light issues...

    Hi, Until now, my cham has had a 100W normal household bulb (yes, my house IS freezing) which keeps his basking spot at 80-88F. I got a new boiler yesterday, so I now have efficient central heating, and his basking spot jumped to 96F, so I have gone back to his 60W bulb to see how the...

    Tongue action?

    I'm aware of how the chameleon tongue works - it grasps the prey - but is there also an element of stickiness? If so, what causes this? I've noticed that my cham is having difficulty keeping hold of prey that hes shot at from a distance - he manages to get a hold of it (unless its a worm...

    I'm sure I'm just being paranoid...

    As the title says - I'm sure I'm just being paranoid, but I've never had a healthy chameleon to know what "normal" is! Colin is doing well, not growing all that much, but gaining weight and condition nicely. I'm wondering whether his legs look a bit odema-ey? Like i said, he's gaining weight...

    Colours...

    Hey, Quick question (well it will probably not be a quick answer!) but what causes chameleon colours? I've been looking at photos of chams since I joined, with a particular love for veileds - but mine is so dull compared to everyone elses! I've had 3 sheds with my guy, and he still...

    Chameleon rehab?

    How do you go about *correctly* rehabilitating a chameleon that has been neglected? Quick bit of history - its pretty simple! Got him at 6-7 months old, only fed on crickets - no variety, just brown crickets, ungutloaded, no supplements. I've got calcium with and without D3 sorted, but...

    Plant density

    Is it possible to have too many plants? I've got the XL reptibreeze and have a ficus in one corner from bottom to top, but its got a bit thin through losing leaves and being eaten, so I've bought a second, and was going to swap them over to let the other recover a bit... I was wondering...

    Feeder boredom?

    Don't worry, this isnt a thread about the leisure activities of my dubia :) My chameleon came to me having been fed only crickets - I got him when he was 6-7 months old. When I first got him, I noticed he was eating very little, and thus got a variety of feeders to entice him to eat - he...
