    Time to go to the vet?

    Hello fellow chameleon forumers, my guy has shown some beginning signs of MBD and I believe it may be time to do something about it. I've tried following advice and made sure i have a standard supplementing schedule. He has started to become less active overall. He'll move to his sleepy-time...

    Gecko in really bad shape...

    This poor little leopard gecko was dumped on the doorstep of Petco (of all places) overnight last week. They brought it to me with the usual allotment of other sick critters they're trying to sell. The poor gecko was severely emaciated, dehydrated, fractured forearm and rubbery jaw from obvious...

    Ok so the other day i posted a thread thinking my female panther may have been gravid because she was dark colours and roaming around the bottom of the cage. I went out and bought a laying bin and set it up in her enclosure but she has not even so much looked at it. Today i have came home...

    Mbd bad

    My male veiled cham has terrible MBD. I know this takes weeks or months to develop, but it honestly seems to have developed overnight. A few days ago he was chasing crickets all over the cage, now he can't even hold himself up or move in any direction. He lives in a 18x18x30 wire mesh cage...

    What Metabolic Bone Disease (MBD) looks like, how it happens, and how to fix it

    Metabolic Bone Disease (MBD) is unfortunately a common disease of reptiles due to lack of dietary calcium, imbalanced nutrition and/or lack of UVB rays. UVB rays from either unfiltered sunlight or a UVB producing bulb are needed in reptiles to produce Vitamin D3 in the skin, which is necessary...

    Update on the MBD redfoot tortoise

    You may remember my little redfoot tortoise rescue. Mia had very loving owners who were just completely uneducated on the needs of a reptile and for over 2 years Mia lived in a 20 gallon tank filled with about a foot of cedar shavings with only a heat lamp above her. She had a water bowl that...

    Tortoises get MBD too...

    Well I'm getting a redfoot tortoise. Someone posted one on craigslist needing a new home because their nephew lost interest (why people get difficult to care for exotic pets for children I still have no idea...) so of course I responded. The adult owner obviously cares for her a lot and asked...

    My chameleon is grabbing his own legs, what does this mean?

    I think he has joint problems but that's out of speculation. While climbing usually, his back legs grab his front legs causing him to get stuck and unbalanced. He's always doing it. The more active he is that day, the more he does it. It's to the point where he's scarring his own arms. I usually...
