    Eye infection

    Please keep my Zeke in your thoughts. About a week ago I took him to the vet for what I thought was a piece of shed in his eye. My vet flushed the eye and gave me some antibiotic drops. The eye got better in a few days but several weeks later the symptoms returned . I brought him back to...

    Lost my girl, Luna

    My female ambilobe was gravid when I was due to leave for vacation. She was digging holes and my pet sitter is a vet tech so I left telling him to keep me informed of her progress. After 2 days of no eggs I told him last night to take her in to the vet for a shot of oxytocin. When he came...

    You know you have a herp lover...

    When your 3 year-old finds a turtle in an architectual salvage store. Inside the store. And you drive around for 30 minutes so you can find "his pond" where his mom and dad are. I am so proud!

    Lost one of my Silkie Chicks.

    I lost one of my silkies yesterday to what I now know is referred to as "pasty butt". You think if you can keep chameleons healthy enough to die of old age a chicken is nothing. Not so, I am a complete newbie. I am really torn up about it- all I had to do is soak the sucker in warm water and...

    Chickens are the coolest.

    My new obsession- Silkie Chickens! My justification? They'll eat the worms too big for my chams...

    This is my 3 year old veiled Vincent. He's my trouble maker, always plotting on how to get off the free range to terrorize everyone else... My 1 1/2 year old female Luna after laying. She has had gular edema and is under a vet's care. This is my 3 1/2 year old Ambilobe boy Zeke. He has...

    Frankenstein Free Range

    I am lucky enough to have a dedicated cham room because there is no way I'd be allowed to put this anywhere else. It started as a fake ficus which I added parrot ladders, fake vines, dowels, branches from the yard, you name it! At this point it reaches all the way up to the 9' ceiling and is...

    New Russian Tort!

    This is my new, as yet unnamed male Russian tortoise. I have wanted one for years but he was somewhat of an impulse buy. He was in a tiny enclosure at Petsmart clawing at the glass. He'll now live in a 3' x 5' tortoise table. That is until I talk my husband into adding a turtle run into our...

    Vegan Chams?

    Just went to Petco for crickets (And to the woman with the fake Prada purse who asked why I let my 3 year old carry the bag of crickets due to germs- I saw your son pick his nose....and eat it) Anyway, was told by the girl who sold me the crix, she just bought a veiled cham and was "teaching...

    Real Housewives of CF...

    As I have progressed in cham keeper world I see a dichotomy- you have dedicated female herpers who happen to have chameleons or the woman who keeps chameleons as a complete opposite to the rest of her life. Where do you stand? Me- I get "Well, she has those lizards" like you would say "Well...

    Urate Hate

    So my panther is a stodgy drinker... I mist, I drip, I have tried to shower, I use a syringe to hand water- point is water is coming at this boy constantly. I cannot get to a white urate. Zeke is a once a week pooper- according to my vet this can cause the urate to be yellow. Anyone else...

    Shower method fail

    So I tried the shower method on my panther because he had yellow urates. Followed the instructions to the letter... he spent the entire time escaping the plant and walking the shower floor. Did not drink a drop. :(

    Light Your Reptiles

    Just wanted to share my experience with Todd from forum sponsor Light Your Reptiles: I use the Arcadia bulbs first of all because of how long they last and the UV output. I would buy them wherever I could regardless of the customer service I received. That said Todd Goode with LYR gives...

    Will have to change my name....

    I will soon no longer be able to be FlChamMom as I am moving to Birmingham, AL in the near future. Sigh... Gotta follow the opportunities and I did go to Auburn. Any cham keepers in the B'ham area? My boys will miss the almost year round outdoor time.

    After numerous vet visits, a whole new cage and setup and three round of Ponazuril we have a clean fecal !!! I know I need to get one more before we are out of the woods but to have this positive news means the world. My panther boy Zeke is the best, he has started eating again- I am beyond...

    Calling all Reptile Experts!

    I am in Bermuda this week and at night there is a "chirping" noise that is unlike anything I have ever heard. I was told that it is a small lizard lives in the trees here. Has anyone heard of the Chirping Lizards of Bermuda? I can't find them during the day- apparently they are very small...

    Old Cham new tricks...

    So I am struggling with a parasite with my cham. I want to monitor his eating but am having troubles. Can you teach a 11 month old cham to cup feed? He has only free ranged fed.

    Coccidia woes...

    I am frustrated. I took my cham back for his two week checkup and he still has coccidia. I have done one round of Ponazuril, sanitized everything with peroxide and ammonia and have gotten all new feeders. Now we have round two of Ponazuril. I am worried sick about him. Does anyone have...
