    Swollen foot

    My Jackson's is missing a few claws--i don't know how. He has a ReptiBreeze cage (all mesh) and his perches are repti-rope. I never handle him, but my sister claims he "crawls right into her hand" whenever she visits (which is bogus because he's super shy), so I'm thinking that maybe he lost a...

    genitals?

    Ok, so, i have never seen my Jackson's pooping. I have seen the poop, but not the actual process. I walked in on it one day, and it was kinda horrifying. There were these two long, skinny, dark red things coming out of each side of his butt, and they each had a white thing on top of them. I'm...

    So skinny!!!

    Hello My Jackson's (age unknown) looks so skinny sometimes. I'll go in in the morning and his entire torso looks like an even, skinny cyllinder. The skin on his stomach will have wrinkles and little folds. I look down, and there is a HUGE pile of poo at the bottom that hadn't been there last...

    Dead feeder technique?

    Hello, My Jackson's is very very picky about his food. He will only eat very fluttery things (butterflies, moths) or very active bugs (prefers grasshoppers to crickets). With winter around the corner, I will be unable to catch him his favorite foods, and his diet will be limited to crickets...

    Monsoon rs400 Mister

    Hello I just bought a Monsoon rs400 mister. Is this a good one? From the reviews I've seen online, the only issue seems to be that water sometimes gets into the timer wiring and busts it... Is there a better one that anyone knows of, or is this one fairly good? Any tips for maintenance or...

    Fruits and Veggies for Jackson???

    I have read many places that Veileds enjoy fruits and veggies, but I have never seen anything either way about Jacksons. My Mr. Colors is on a hunger-strike, and I am trying everything I can think of. Are fruits and veggies (and if so, which ones?) something that Jacksons would/should eat the...

    Hunger Strike!

    My Jackson chameleon won't eat ANYTHING! He got bored with crickets, so I started mixing in some mealworms. He wouldn't eat those because they wouldn't crawl up the screen (sigh), so I tried superworms. I know that they are quite fatty, so I tried to space out his eating them, but very soon he...

    Is this butterfly toxic?

    Hello, My Jackson LOVES fluttery things, thus butterflies are among his favorites. Anyways, I know that white butterflies (first link) are fine for them. But there are yellow ones (second link) that look very similar...does anyone know if they are alright? The yellow ones seem to be more...

    Mealworm Technique

    My Jackson has been eating mainly crickets, with the occasional grasshopper or moth thrown in upon capture (I am wary of wild feeders). I want as much variation as I can get in his diet, so I got some mealworms. No matter what I did, he didn't seem interested--I tried dangling them near him with...

    Swollen Eye Tissue, please help

    Hello, I have a Jackson's chameleon. The tissue around his pupil is swollen almost completely over the pupil. I took him to the vet as soon as I noticed it (July 7th). However, I live in an area where there is a vet who takes reptiles, but they are by no means reptile experts (the nearest...
