    Calling all Minnesota keepers

    I'm so ITCHY!!

    So, my panther started a shed this morning and he is doing it very quickly. It must be irritating, because he was even rubbing on my hand when I was messing with his misting nozzle.

    Ambilobe hatchling pics

    Cuteness. That's what he is. It was nice and overcast today, so I brought him out for a while for some natural sunlight. Here are a few pics. BTW, his eyes are closed because I misted him heavily. He always keeps them closed during and right after a misting. He also gaped at the mist. Very funny...

    I found some great material to enclose cham cages!

    This material is probably known by many of you, but I am quite pleased I discovered it. The material is .060 thickness white plastic called PLAS-TEX. it seems like it would work GREAT for enclosing the backs and sides of cham enclosures. I found the material at Menards. It is located with the...

    A thought on veiled health

    So since I have been in this hobby it has come to my attention that veiled chameleons have a lot more health problems than other species of Chameleons. At first I simply wrote it off as statistical odds due to the numbers of veiled Chams out there and the fact that a great many of them are owned...

    Mosquito born illness

    I am going to be building an outdoor enclosure so that my Chams can get some sun this summer. One thing that occurrd to me is mosquito born illness. I know that West Nile and a couple other viruses are found here, does anybody know if that or any other mosquito born virus can affect chams?

    I almost got out of the hobby!

    My wife left for work the other day and forgot to kennel the dog. I came home an hour later to find three cages smashed in and screens ripped out. Luckily, the Chams stayed up high and nobody was hurt. My gracilior did manage to get out after the attack and I found him in the bathroom on the...

    Hornworm hatred?

    So I got a couple dozen hornworms for my chams last week and neither of my adult Chams would touch them. They would just stare at them and do nothing. They would totally give me the stink eye when I put them in their cages. I am a bit surprised as so many people say how much their chams love...

    Getting friendly

    I know there is a huge debate about chams having affection with owners and what not and this post isn't to debate whether thats true or not. I just want to share a recent behavior in my panther. If my son or wife get close his cage he will either display, run, or hide. If either of them open the...

    Quite a scare!

    So, I come downstairs this morning, let the dogs out, and then head to the cham cages like usual. I see what I think look like burns all along my panthers back. I felt like I was gonna throw up as I am SURE his basking spot at the top of his back only ever reaches 87 max. I was literally...
