    Egg #23 never made it out.

    Cinnamon laid 22 eggs back in mid may. Last week she passed away at the veterinarian after a desperate surgery attempt to remove egg #23. She showed no signs of health problems until 2 days before she passed. She was eating aggressively as usual and drinking normally until last week she suddenly...

    More eggs from cinnamon

    Cinnamon laid her second clutch yesterday exactly 3 months after the first batch. There were 22 this time and 18 the first time. This clutch was sort of an accident, Sniper and Cinnamon got busy in the back seat of my pickup when I was moving them to my new house. I had them in thier ficus...

    Yikes! Sniper ate a stray house gecko!

    Some of you are familiar with my outdoor setup here in South Florida. Many geckos and anoles make thier home close to the cages because they drink from the misters. Sniper always has eyed the little lizards that pass outside his cage. Today when I was cleaning his cage, a medium sized house...

    Panthers breeding in back seat of my truck!

    So I bought a bigger house/property and was moving the chams over to the new place today. I put the empty cages in the back of my truck and put the chams in the back seat of my Silverado in thier ficus trees. About five minutes into the drive I heard some rustling in the back seat, so I glanced...

    Cinnamon laid eggs today

    After 30 days since mating, Cinnamon laid 18 eggs in the bottom of a 12" planter filled with soil. She has been digging for a couple days now, but I startled her the first time, and the second day she got spooked by the auto mister. This morning I shut the mister off, and when I got home from...

    Nosy Mitsio/Soabana/Mafana

    Anybody know what locale this is? I stumbled across a photo of a wild panther chameleon(locale unknown) while doing research on madagascar. It was lemon yellow with hot pink bars. I've been trying to find the photo again to post it, but can't seem to find it anywhere, I don't even remember what...

    nutritional analysis of gutloaded crix

    As you can see from this chart, non gutloaded crickets have a horrible cal/phos ratio: roughly 1:7, a far cry from the recommended 1.5:1 minimum. However, when gutloaded with a high calcium diet as most experienced chameleon keepers do, the ratio is raised to almost 1:1. This is WAY better than...

    weather data chart of N. Madagascar

    Here is a weather chart of Antisiranana, a city in the range of the Panther Chameleon. I thought it might be of interest to any other obsessive chameleon owners out there. I am always looking for new data in an attempt to duplicate ideal conditions for my chams. One thing I noticed is that the...

    My girl finally warmed up to him.

    Sniper caught a glimpse of Cinnamon three weeks ago when I was moving them indoors for a spell when it cooled off here in S. Florida. She gaped and displayed threat coloration at his sight. Ever since then he has been restless, so once they were back outdoors, I aimed a 50 watt heat lamp at...

    Mantid ootheca hatched

    The first of 15 chinese praying mantis oothecas I bought on ebay hatched today. It looks like there are at least 200 of them. They are about 1/2 inch long each but thier stick like bodies make them the equivalent of a 1/4inch cricket, they look like huge mosquitos at first glance. My 7 month old...

    Anyone else using blatta lateralis

    I just got 200 blatta lateralis and want to get a colony going capable of serving as the staple for a pair of panther chams. I have them in a 20 gallon long. Will that be big enough? Keep in mind that by staple I mean about 30% of the diet. I like to provide a lot of variety including silkworms...
