    His first shed!

    Or atleast his first with me. He must have just started while I was at work. I gave him a good mist a little bit ago and just turned the lights out. Anything else I should do to help him? Just extra misting? Should I give him reptivite or other vitamin other than cal? More than the monthly dose...

    Happy dance?

    Just looked over at Argo and he was dancing on the vine showing the brightest green I've ever seen on him and had his mouth wide open. I'm guessing it's some kind of display for mating, but I have no other chameleons. Is this just something that they do on their own sometimes?

    Bottled Water vs Treated Tap?

    Didn't know if I should post this here or in another area, it's not really health related or cage related. When you fill your drippers/sprayer/misters ex. do you use treated tap water or bottled water? Or just tap? I'm currently using bottled drinking water for everything including the cool...
