The cage usually has three plants in it, however, two are being nursed back to health after a nasty spider mite attack.
That is his favorite spot in the cage during the day, and he loves coming out...if I open the cage he climbs onto me, although I think he is generally looking...
Sorry for the huge pic
Sorry about the huge pic! I forgot to downsize it!
Anyways, he is from Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
Sadly I don't quite remember who his daddy is, I think it is either Nemesis or Blaze.
Monika is an awesome Chameleon breeder though!
i like to think of it as being similar to putting a frog in boiling water.
A frog will try to escape boiling water because the temperature change is immediate. If you place a frog in room temp water and then gradually boil it the frog will not notice and will die without freaking out...
3 month old BB Ambilobe
I am currently experiencing my first time owning a chameleon. His name is Chimichunga. He is very shy and doesnt really enjoy bein handled but does allow me to get right up to him without him panicking. Have had hime almost 2 weeks. His eating habits are a little spotty...
I have my new 3 month Ambilobe (Chimichanga).
He so far seems to be happy with his enclosure, however, I am concerned over his temperatures have me a little concerned. The night time temperatures I have been able to reduce to 70F. His daytime tempratures are hitting 80F. The...
stuff in the up
there is a carrot in the cup which seems to keep the crickets in the cup egen though it is so shallow. there is a rock (which in the picture has several crickets sitting on it). the rock was to keep the cup from moving around too muh but i removed it so the crickets would be...
saw him eat!!
i did see him eat just now...he just doesnt seem to like eating if he can see me. i checked the cup and there seems to be several gone already and i cant see any free roaming so he must have got em!
I just got my first Chameleon and have some general feeding questions.
I know he is probably stressed from moving into a new home, but I wanted to make sure he is eating as well!
For today I have some crickets (littles ones) and haven't noticed him eat any yet. He seems...
tha is so upsetting. i really hope all goes well.
that reminds me of a turtle i got from an aquantence that had been kept in only kept it in an aquarium full of water in their basement for 3 years with no basking light and no UVB...they barely even fed it! i had to watch its shell...
I used some styro-foam to create a slope towards the drain, then I covered it in a PVC pond liner, that way any excess will always drain out into the catch-basin inside of the cabinet below.
i got the umbrella from home depot...it was the biggest one they had...the other ones they had were just freshly sprouted...i will hunt around some more home depots the next week or so to maybe find another umbrella.
thank you!!! im new to all this so it is fun and interesting...
the cage is 3'x2'x4'
i have a hawaiian umbrella, hibiscus, and pothos in there. those are the biggest ones i could find locally...i might have to pick up something more from the sounds of it! it just seems that all of the greenhouses around here only have very small tropical plants...
So my enslosure is completed. All plants are in, vines are setup, mister is going, everything is complete. I live in a very dry climate (Edmonton, Alberta) so it is proving difficult keeping the humidity higher. I have installed a humidifier in my home to keep the general...
