    Maggot inside jackson cheek

    I'm happy to hear your chameleon improved without veterinary intervention. To be fair though, the advice to seek veterinary care was good advice. Like humans or any other animal, chameleons can improve spontaneously, or spiral and get worse. Reptiles also don't clear infections as well as...

    Bromeliad "pup" question...

    My understanding is that the bromeliads usually sold at the supermarket or garden center stores are Guzmania bromeliads, which tend to be sold for their colorful blooms. The reason they die is because they bloom at the natural end of their life cycle, then they split into new pups as the mother...

    I really like this picture, may I ask what you used for background/lighting?

    How can I prevent overwatering

    In my experience growing a ton of plants (I think I'm up to ~75 species or so) under various artificial lights in and outside of terrariums, it depends on potting mix and habituation. Ficus should be able to take a fair amount of water. I have one growing with my poison dart frogs, and while...

    How can I prevent overwatering

    I have a false bottom in my vivarium for drainage, and the wastewater empties into a bucket. SerpaDesign's channel on YouTube has a few tutorials on false bottoms for planted terrarius. If you're using a screen cage with a tray, no substrate, and potted plants, you could put clay balls (I think...

    Glass or screen cage

    I think a panther would be a good call. I personally like them more than veileds, but they are more expensive. The issue is not so much whether or not you're a quick learner and more that if you get an import they may have underlying disease that will manifest later, regardless of your...

    Opinion required

    I think there's been a lot of good information posted already. I would like to add: in terms of humidity gauges: the plastic circle analog ones that are sold for reptiles are almost universally junk and don't actually work. If you don't have one already, I would recommend an electronic one...

    Glass or screen cage

    For what it's worth I might reconsider the flap neck as your first chameleon. In my experience captive bred is one of the most important aspects to consider when selecting a reptile, and it'll be hard to find a CB flapneck (the link is for wild caught animals). Wild caught animals, particularly...

    Glass or screen cage

    I prefer glass enclosures with vents for the reasons already described (humidity in my house is usually around 45% and keeping it up with a screen cage wasn't working very well). If you do go with a screen cage I would recommend an automated misting system as it will need to be misted very...

    Feeder History: Where Did Dubias Come From?

    Do you remember when you first had access to them commercially?

    2020 Calendar Cover - Tie Breaker

    That might be a good suggestion. I only even said anything because I saw some playful ribbing of folks who had said they voted for my panther pic so I felt like I should weigh in. I feel like it needs to be no influence/commenting or anything's fair game.

    Feeder History: Where Did Dubias Come From?

    When did dubia roaches first become commercially available? And when did they become as widespread as they are now? I started out keeping reptiles when I was a kid in the late 90's and early to mid 00's. Back then, the insect feeders commercially available were crickets and mealworms, with the...

    I should add that despite all that, they're both great pictures. I'm happy to see Spicoli has made it this far either way.

    2020 Calendar Cover - Tie Breaker

    **Shameless self promotion** While the Parson's is a very nice photo, the photo of my panther Spicoli has a great story behind it: Spicoli was re-homed to me from a keeper who could no longer take care of him. I had recently lost a chameleon and was not sure I was ready for another pet, but this...

    west coast chameleon brothers

    I thought this addition might be relevant to anyone doing research into potential chameleon breeders: The West Coast Chameleon Bros stand at the 2019 Sacramento Reptile Show appeared to be selling quite a few animals to low information keepers in enclosures smaller than would normally be...

    Mulberry leaves!

    Well let me know how it goes and I may resume my own project. It's been in the 100's where I live though, so I haven't been able to order any silkworm eggs anyway (I could probably pay for icepacks and overnight shipping and have them arrive alive, but then we're looking at shipping that costs...

    Mulberry leaves!

    Have you successfully used that recipe for mash to feed any silkworms yet? I have been thinking about doing the same as I live in a neighborhood with several publicly accessible trees. I ground a bag of them up and was frustrated at only getting about a cup of powder so I have given up for now...

    Bioactive Setup and Lighting Suggestions

    Good Evening All, I've seen a few posts recently about bioactive builds and lighting. I thought I would share the enclosure I setup for my two year old panther Chameleon Spicoli back in December, with lighting and drainage specs for anyone trying to build something similar. Spicoli in a 36" x...
