A few hours ago my girlfriends adult male Panther chameleon climbed out of his outdoor inclosure through a hole we were previously unaware of. He could've climbed out into thick brush and they also have some pretty large trees.
today it is 77 degrees F there and tonight it will be 64 degrees F...
he does not shoot his tongue very far at all. maybe an inch. I basically feed his food directly to his mouth. a few months back he was shooting his tongue a t LITERALLY nothing. you can see a video of it linked earlier in this thread. that's how I know his vision is bad
also he has started...
Alex is, again, slowly getting better.
the swelling on his cheek has not progressed at all. not sure if I should do anything or just leave it?
Today he pooped again for the second time since all this happened
and he ate two crickets!
overall he looks pretty healthy and I haven't seen...
Alex is still seeming to get better very very slowly
as I said before he is showing those odd coordination and vision issues less and less.
he also pooped once
he is still showing no interest in food. anyone know why that might be?
of course! Message me anytime, I love learning more about care. I plan on keeping chameleons for the rest of my life so I want to know as much as possible to keep them healthy, especially Jacksons.
also I know that I got him the VERY FIRST DAY they were allowed to sell him, so whatever age that...
does anyone have any idea what this is?
he had some sort of similar dark spots on his arms like this as well about a week ago.
I took him outside this morning for some sun and he didn't have any of these marks on his side. I came back in my room a few hours later and he had these marks.
my chameleon is not wild caught. I got him from a local pet store.
I will try keeping him cooler for the next few days and see how that effects him.
should I get a mineral supplement?
how often should I put bee pollen on his food? im assuming that's just an occasional thing for when his...
I found an old thread where someone said this
This freaked me out when I saw my chameleon like this but the vet said it was totally normal and you need to delicately squeeze from the back to the front (on their swollen cheek) with a Qtip or your finger like if you were squeezing a tube of...
yeah I forsure get where youre coming from. I just don't have a trustworthy vet.
I wish there was an easy way to empty it out. if so, I could clean it and periodically put Manuka honey on it to keep the bacteria from growing again.
thank you so much. I really appreciate all the info you've given me.
while the location of his swelling seems a little high, with his poor health right now, and lack of supplementing, it makes sense that he would have a temporal gland infection. with that being said, what do you think the best...
