The vet sent me a sympathy card. How thoughtful of them, it was signed by everyone there. :-) Now that's a good vet.
For y'all that don't know, my male veiled passed away a few days ago. I buried him in my garden with a piece of his branch from his cage.
RIP El Chamino, I miss you!
I'm devasted. I woke up this morning to find El Chamino, my 7 month old male veiled died. He was still holding onto a branch, but down at the bottom of the cage.
I am so stunned. He was doing great. The vet had nothing bad to say, he was eating, drinking, and everything was right...
So searching through the forums, the only thing I consistantly find about silkworms are that they are good for dehydrated chams. I feed my veiled cham (Male) crickets and silk worms, and I'm just wondering what makes silkworms good, and what do they offer?
My cham loves the silkies...
So i decided to start feeding my cham El Chamino silk worms. I've had him for about 5 weeks now.
He is quite agressive, probably because he doesn't like me rubbing BNP cream in his eyes everyday, but anyway, he hisses and freaks whenever I get close or mist him.
I bought silk worms...
My cham is pretty much sleeping all day...he usually wakes up somewhere around 9am, but it's 11:50 and he's still sleeping.
He is easy to wake up at this point, my misting woke him up, and when I put his crickets into the cage he woke up as well.
What should I do?
So his first shed in my care is finished! He now has beautiful patterns on him! There are pictures below :-) I also bought him a nice Ficus tree!
From the pictures, does he look good? Hydrated, and everything?
Meal Worms. I bought 'em, but he shys away from me...
Can I let my cham ride my doggy?
Haha, I'm joking, but I do have a question.
Does is stress out chams to have a dog walking around every so often?
The enclosure is in my room, and the door stays shut during the day, but whenever I walk in the dog is sure to follow. He's a medium-ish...
My cham (veiled) is shedding his first shed in my care! I'm really excited, but I must say, it's a weird thing to witness! Haha. I already see more colour in him, and he's been acting weird, but from reading the forums I see it's typical for them to act weird during a shed. he just hides...
Just a general question for when summer gets into full swing.
How do you go about keeping the humidity level down on those humid days? I would think a dehumidifier would work, but any other ways?
Is it normal for a Veiled to remain brown all day, and then turn a nice green when he's sleeping? He is new, I've had him for 4 days now, and I would think tht he would be used to his surroundings by now? I put some pictures below, apologies for the quality.
I've had my new Veiled Chameleon for a few days now, and I'm having problems keeping the humidity up. I mist like every hour/hour and a half to keep it up, but it never seems to go past 50. I am going to add in a sac of ice cubes that will drip into a bowl, and I'm debating a...
