    Do I buy blue or pink cham toys?

    How do you tell the difference between male and female pygmy chams? Anyone know? I have 2 veiled's and know about the spur on the male's feet, but what about pygmy's? Here is my new little guy, he's supposed to be a male. But how do I know for sure?

    My new friend...Sluggo. He's ADORABLE!

    Here's my new baby...Sluggo. (He reminds me of a little slug with legs.) I just got him this weekend. He is VERY friendly, contrary to popular belief. I was told pygmys "drop dead" if you try to hold them!! That couldn't be further from the truth. He actually prefers to craw on my hand as...

    Incubation tips...fan or no fan?

    Hi! My veiled deposited all her eggs early this morning. I went out and bought a Hova-bator a couple of days ago. It has a fan in it. I read a couple of places not to use the fan on cham eggs. Is this true? I also want to make sure that I am NOT supposed to ever turn the eggs. Is that...

    My female veiled is gravid and should be depositing her fertile eggs in about a week or more. I have a lot of research on the incubation once she lays them. I went out and got a Hova-bator today. I am R-E-A-D-Y! I realized I haven't spent as much time on researching the best soil for her to...

    I have a female veiled getting ready to deposit her eggs in about a week and a half or two. (Her 1st clutch.) I live in the great Northwest where we get very little sunshine. The last few weeks it's been gorgeous outside, so I have built an outdoor tube cage (w/ a ficus tree inside) to allow...
