So lately my female has been roaming the grounds trying to lay her eggs.. the holes kept collapsing and she would just make a new one. since my local stores didnt have any sculpting sand or coconut bark, i had to make my own recipe of soil for her to lay in. after the first few holes held...
well my veileds used to (still sometimes do) wander the ground after i feed them.
they eat the worms and crickets i give them (i give them a planned diet) and they still seem to be hungry after that on some occasions. which a few minutes after they realize they are out of food, they wander...
So i was cleaning both of my chams cages at the same time, i thought it would help save a bit of time doing them together..
so i took out my male and set him in a plant in my room, and my female in another plant in my bathroom..
i began cleaning the cages and about halfway through, i went...
darn, ive been following this thread for a while now.
and im really sorry to hear that he died. he was a cute little guy too.
i had my first veiled cham die about 2 weeks after i got him :[
he ate some of the perlite in the potting soil that was used in the plants.
i felt so...
Ive heard that the chlorine amounts in tap water is actually fatal to a chameleon.. so ive always been using chlorine free water, and i dont mind it at all.
but is it really true? what happens if i do run tap water into their dripper? will it have a serious affect?
im still going to run...
surprising, ive actually seen my veieled run to a perch point, right above the water collecting cup, and poop in it, then leave the area.
i wasnt deliberatley watching her, dont think im some freak, :P
but she actually goes in the same, or very close to same place, to drop her load every time
Well im sure someone else is going to post after me and comb out all the little necessities about owning one. but to start off:
Welcome to the forums, ask anyone any question, and as usual someone with more intelligence than me will answer it :]
so. with the very basics.
hmm, well i usually feed mine each about 10 large crickets for their breakfast before i go to school, and another 10 around right now (4pm pacific time)
what size crickets are you feeding him?
and if hes scavenging around the ground (as do mine) id feed him more until hes satisfied...
I've become really interested in the Jackson's chameleons, and i think one of them may just be my next purchase :)
So is anyone selling them and how much do they normally run for? 4-5 months of age.
im not looking to buy right now, as im short in money, and a cage. i just want to know...
hmm true, thats a good idea.
and claws getting stuck in branches.. another potential worry for the typical chameleon owner..
and to "lymorg"
ive really been looking at that jackson and liking him alot, i think one might just me my next purchase.
and is he a certain morph of jackson...
Ah, well im not worried about the claws so much.
ive held a fully grown veiled before and its nothing much for pain, at least not to me.
and cant vets CAREFULLY trim their claws? or file the tips down a bit?
i know their blood/nerve lines are very close to the tip of the nail. but cant...
