    How to free range with other pets?

    Dogs can be trained to not bug chameleons. And, your chameleon will probably smart enough to stay at high elevation. I find my dogs has no interest whatsoever in chameleon. Cats, on the other hand, are liability. They are the only one in the animal kingdom that will kill just for fun. So, my...

    it's normal. I would imagine from their behaviors that the whole shedding process is quite uncomfortable.

    My Cham loves Brocolli. Is this ok for him?

    It contains high oxalate that block your chameleon's calcium absorption rate. So, if i were you, i would not load my chameleon with broccoli. As far as your other questiom goes, i would recommend kale, collard green, and dandelion. Avoid spinach as it has the same problem with broccoli.

    Buy a chameleon now or at NARBC?

    Just wait and buy your cham at the show. In the meantime, you can setup the cage first. So, when you go home from the show, your chameleon already has a perfect enclosure.

    Fiscus benjamina - Good for the Chameleon??

    If you are wary about the possibility, just make sure to let the sap dries overnight anytime you feel the need to prune your ficus. Other than that, I see nothing wrong with ficus benjamina. Other tree that might catch your interest is Ficus Alii.

    Do Chameleons have the ability to show affection to their owners?

    I see nothing wrong in applying some sense of human notion to our pet, as long as deep down you understand that it is more for your own benefit than the animal. It's much more "interesting" and "rewarding" knowing that your chameleon recognized you as his owner rather than a moving tree or an...

    boredom? or something else? :(

    As the owner of this chameleon is located in a country with tropical climates, we have to somewhat "adjust" our advice. Most of our understanding in general husbandry is not even relevant to be practiced there. I.e: The humidity in Indonesia alone is enough for chameleons to survive without...

    favorite worm?

    Yes. I have. But, I decided not to anymore. I realized it's taking away too much of my time. The larvae needs to be in a clean condition practically everyday. Hundreds of years of selective breeding caused silkworms to have no immune system and the moth to have vestigial wings (meaning that the...

    favorite worm?

    The toughest part of breeding silkworm is not the moth phase. It is the larvae phase. The moth has no mouth. So, they do not eat. Their only purpose is to mate and lay eggs.

    boredom? or something else? :(

    Owen, I would avoid feeding your crickets with dogfood as gutload. Overtime, the high protein can cause gout (asam urat) to your chameleon. Gutload your crickets with vegetables and some fruits such as kale, carrots, apples, dandelions, etc etc. Avoid broccoli and spinach. I don't think Dubia...

    daily on Mineral supplements (calcium).. On the other hands, Vitamins (especially the one that is fat soluble such as retinol and D3) should not be fed daily to avoid overdosing your chameleon.

    Sil worms vs Phoenix worms

    Just for your information, phoenix worm (at least the one you get from the store) should not be fed poop or trash by the provider. Naturally, they eat some vegetables matter. Phoenix worm is quite different than house fly maggots. As far as nutrition, phoenix worm seems to have a somewhat...
