    Rudis Chameleons

    I have been looking into getting Rudis Chameleons over the past week or so. I have 125 gallon reptarium that I was planning on keeping a small group of them in. What do ya'll keep yours in? How many could I comfortably house in it? I read that they don't need a heat lamp because they like...

    Keeping Chameleons

    After two failed attempts at keeping chameleons, one veiled and one flapneck, I have decided to try once again. The first one died suddenly of an assummed genetic disorder. According to everyone I talked with, we did everything correctly. The flapneck died of mal-nutrition. He quit eating...

    My Chameleon Vomited

    I was watching my Chameleon Gus climb around his cage this afternoon. He was on the ceiling crawling underneath the heat lamp. He started moving a little sparadically and then his front legs let go from the top so he was hanging upside down. He stayed like that jolting around a bit. I thought he...

    He wants to eat but I don't think he can!

    My poor Flapneck has been improving in weight, color and strength over the past week. He still has one eye that stays closed a lot but he opens it more and more. So today instead of hand feeding hime the Repta-Aid I wanted to see if he would eat some crickets. I placed four dusted crickets in...

    Update on sick Flapneck

    Ok so I posted earlier this week about my dehydrated and malnourished Flapneck Chameleon Gus. I gave him a shower the next day. He didn't really try to drink the water but, because of the amount of water falling on him, I believe he got some into his mouth. The next day I purchased that...

    Where do I put the lights?

    I have a reptarium and because of the dark screen I was wondering if the lights should be placed inside or outside the cage. I know the heat lamp should be out, we don't want any burns, but will the uvb/uva rays penetrate the heavy screen?

    Help!!! My Chameleon is going to die!!

    So...I bought a Flapneck Chameleon at a reptile expo about six weeks ago. He was doing great...eating, drinking, basking, basically acting like a regular chameleon. His bone structure, eyes and color looked good. We had him in a cage that was too small for him so we upgraded to a 125 gallon...

    Blue Tongue Skink with MBD

    I recently started a job at a pet store and there is a Blue Tongue Skink with MBD that they will be adopting out. The MBD is concentrated in the lower part of his spine near his tail. His condition has not gotten any worse since he has been placed in isolation and been given treatment. He is an...

    Hungry or Just Bored

    Do chameleons eat until they are full or do they eat because they see prey? We just want to make sure that he eats enough and that we don't over-feed him. Our 3 month old veiled chameleon eats between 13-18 crickets a day. Is that okay or a little to excessive? We put them in a dish at the...

    Veiled with open mouth

    Okay so this is bothering me. My 2 month old veiled chameleon which I got on Friday, is walking around with his mouth open sometimes. He just does it for about 5 or so seconds at a time and does it several times a day. Everything else with the temp, humidity and lighting is correct. I just...
