    Question about first cham egg ive ever hatched

    I just hatched my first panther cham (actually my first cham of any kind). I was surprised a bit to see one of the eggs begin to sweat because i had been incubating the eggs at 74 degrees and it was still 2 weeks shy of 9 months so i figured they'd make it closer to 10 months to hatch at that...

    RB Ambilobe w/Gout, Need Insights

    Update: the vet found the lumps to be nothing more than an abscess. He said he had seen lots of abscesses but never one quite like this one or in that location. He lanced and drained it, put some antibiotic gel in the void, then gave him an antibiotic shot. I have 5 more shots of the antibiotic...

    RB Ambilobe w/Gout, Need Insights

    Thanks again everyone! Keep the info coming! The more i get from you guys the more things make sense. A few weeks before any obvious symptoms, he was in with a receptive female who was literally crawling underneath him trying to get some action and he wasn't interested in the slightest. A...

    RB Ambilobe w/Gout, Need Insights

    Interesting. Thats why my first question was about my diagnosis. If i have it wrong, and nobody on here knows, then i will take him in. Why do you say it isn't gout? It fits the description to a T as far as I could tell. Crystals are forming in his hip joints and that causes the swelling. He...

    RB Ambilobe w/Gout, Need Insights

    I have a male Red Bar Ambilobe who got gout. I have read a lot on the disease in chams and have determined the cause to be a combination of raising my crickets on dog food (mainly) and night time temps being too low (he's kept outside in Naples and got down to 40F one night he was out and i had...

    Erroneous Conclusions Hurt Husbandry

    A problem i often see is people humanizing them. They treat the cham the way they would want to be treated but that cham isn't a person and doesn't want to be treated like we do. My daughter does this with all kinds of animals and has killed them from time to time (in the goodness of her heart)...

    Question about water crystals

    The ball kind are the same polymere used in the granulated kind so they'll work but you have to make sure they didnt add perfumes to them or fertilizer and that the coloring they use on them is food safe. The crystals are plain and safe. The balls are usually for some decorative purpose or for...

    eggbound dying

    Denverbug is right, no need to feel sorry! I was just telling the story in the hopes that others would be able to save babies if they were ever in the same boat with an egg bound female that didnt make it. If her eggs werent fertile then thee was certainly no need to cut her open! Let her rest...

    Total length of a veiled

    This one was 21" and missing the end of his tail. WC in Florida a couple of months ago. We also found 15 hatchlings in the bushes close by which was cool for obvious reasons but also bc it was January and in the 50's at night. You rarely find hatchlings in the winter. Thee was also a nice big...

    3.5 mo Panther feeder recommendations?

    Jim from The Chameleon Company says that one insect that is properly gut loaded is better than a variety of insects. He feeds his thousands of chams nothing but crickets and lets them get some wild insects here and there as well. He would know.

    eggbound dying

    At the risk of coming across as insensitive, I'll tell you what i did with one of my female chams in the same situation. I had given her to a friend as a gift when she was a hatchling. He worked at a reptile breeding facility and was a very experienced reptile keeper. Unfortunately chams weren't...

    That's funny right there! Chameleons love speed, they just can't go fast without some help.

    Question about water crystals

    If a cricket were to eat dry water crystals (i don't know who would even attempt to feed their crickets dry water crystals, but anyway), it would die before it had a chance to be fed to a cham. The crystals absorb 30 times their size in water and they do it in fairly short order. A dry crystal...
