    First Yemen babies expected soon

    Brody, what does loD or LoD stand for? And what % should the UVB be? I'm not sure what lamps I have now, but I will have to replace them soon. My female seems to be sometimes so "hungry" for UVB that she climbs on top of the cage and squeezes directly underneath the UVB canope and she stays...

    First Yemen babies expected soon

    Jannb, thank you once again for your really great advice. Your pictures are exactly what I was hoping to see here. I am in South England, UK, and have not found any breeders nearby yet. However, there is a reptile specialist pet shop about half an hour drive from us and they have expressed...

    First Yemen babies expected soon

    Beautiful setups! Thank you so much for this inspiration! Okay, I will start building and gluing such little scaffolds, too... Indeed, we will need a lot more space for this project.

    First Yemen babies expected soon

    My form completed: Chameleon Info: Your Chameleon - 2x Veiled Yemen chameleons, 1F&1M, ca. 11/2 and 4 years old. Both about nine months in my care, but I have also had other chameleons before. Handling - Daily. Feeding - Each cham gets every second day about 10 crickets or 10 locusts or a...

    First Yemen babies expected soon

    :unsure::wideyed: Hello Brodey, thank you a lot for your invaluable advice. My first batch is 73 eggs, laid on 24th April. So they are actually only in their 5th month now. The next batch was on 31st May with about 50 eggs left out of 65 from another female. And she laid another batch of 67 eggs...

    First Yemen babies expected soon

    Thanks, I actually did quite a bit of "digging" already and I have two vivariums completely set up for the hatchlings and an excellent reptile food supplier who delivers any live food imaginable overnight. I shop here: https://www.reptilecentre.com/ - so I think I don't need to set up cultures...

    First Yemen babies expected soon

    Hi! My Veiled Yemen chameleon eggs have been in the incubator for almost 6 months and I expect the babies to start hatching soon. As it is my first batch, do you have any information, recommendations, and advice for me? For example, will the babies know naturally how to feed, drink, and move to...

    Chameleon on floor

    Yes, but she has laid them on the floor of her vivarium. You are lucky that she did, but the ideal scenario would have been - as several forum members have pointed out above - if you had provided her with a laying box in time, where she could dig a tunnel and lay her eggs in a dark environment...

    "Cup feeding" and humidity

    I have two questions regarding basic husbandry: 1. Cup feeding. In another thread (which I don't want to "hijack") I read this story: "Those worms [hornworms] can hold on to nearly anything like Velcro. My mistake for not cup feeding him. Anyway instead of the worm coming to Atlas when he shot...

    Extremely fertile Yemen female - ever had a Caesarian in a cham before?

    My heart is with you, Kristen. Sadly, also my Lizzie passed away today, due to a far too large clutch of eggs. I did everything as the vet had recommended, was syringe-feeding her water, liquid calcium and highly-nutritious food paste, and she indeed picked up some strength initially and pushed...

    Extremely fertile Yemen female - ever had a Caesarian in a cham before?

    Thank you all for your very helpful replies. It seems there is no end to learning as far as it comes to chameleon husbandry! I have reserved a spot for surgery at the vet's for next Tuesday (that was the earliest one I could get). If she lays in the meantime I can still cancel it, but if not she...

    Extremely fertile Yemen female - ever had a Caesarian in a cham before?

    Yes, I have a thermostat. A simple one fixly attached near the basking lamp, and a second, pointer type one which measures the temperature wherever I point it to. Further, her vivarium is really large (150cm high x 60x60) and she can move between warmer and cooler places. But okay, I will make...

    Extremely fertile Yemen female - ever had a Caesarian in a cham before?

    Her basking spot has a temperature between 26 to 32 °C which is between 78 and 89 F, depending on the outside room temperature (her enclosure is next to a window, so sunlight leads to temperature changes during the day. In summer I close the curtain to hold off sunlight. Is that okay?

    Extremely fertile Yemen female - ever had a Caesarian in a cham before?

    Wow, I find it really impressive when pet owners invest into surgeries and high vet costs for little and cheap-to-obtain pets like these. I used to run an animal shelter in rural Australia many years ago and recall from those times that many pet owners would give up their pets at the first sight...

    Extremely fertile Yemen female - ever had a Caesarian in a cham before?

    Oh, thank you so much for this information - I had no idea that I might have been overfeeding her! Indeed, Lizzie has always had almost unrestricted access to food, mainly dusted locusts and crickets and a bowl full of green leaves and herbs, fruit & veggie pieces and worms (mainly calciworms...

    Worms Again

    Thanks a lot for your reply, Amanda. Now I understand the whole issue! It is great that you took the time to explain it in detail. I hope more research will be done into exotic pets and other animals in the future. They deserve it, and their owners do, too!

    Extremely fertile Yemen female - ever had a Caesarian in a cham before?

    My Lizzie laid 84 eggs in January and now, end of April, she has laid and/or is still pregnant with a total of 85 eggs and this is causing serious problems. The first time, she managed well. She was well over a year old, was strong an healthy and bigger than average (240g weight pregnant, 180g...

    Worms Again

    Hello Amanda, from certain wordings (such as "we're not permitted to dispense medication") I assume you are a vet or a vet nurse yourself, are you? I understand the value of vet care but I also believe that simple things such as parasite control can be easily taken care of by the pet owner at...
