    Panther shedding bath

    Just curious, I've seen pictures of people giving their Panther chameleons baths during sheds. I have a very young 8 week old Panther so don't want to do it at all currently honestly until he doubles in size. Is giving them a bath just to help with the shed and something that is necessary? Never...

    Do full grown adults continue to shed?

    Do adult chameleons stop shedding once they're full grown as long as they maintain their weight and do not become chubby? The reason I am asking is that I have a female Meru Jackson's who hasn't shed for awhile who is in full shed today. She really doesn't eat much however she gave birth 2...

    Stuck shed on pads of feet

    So, it has been a good few months since I've been active on here and it has been a dry... DRY winter here in northern Virginia. Osiris, my nearly year-old chameleon has been in a slow sectioned shed for about a month now, but having issue with the pads of his feet. I've made sure that his...

    Pygmy cham shedding

    My pygmy chameleon started shedding yesterday morning and this morning there's still a piece of SHEd stuck to him. It's kind of wrapped around his leg. But when I looked at the other side I managed to unhook one end of the "skin rope" and now it's just this long hanging piece of shed hooked on...

    wired behaviour before shedding

    Has anyone else notested wired behaviour before shedding? I heard of them going off their food, going pastle colours, being very grumpy, lethargic, streching lots and scratching on things. My 7m panther dose all of this but he also gets very uncodonated, the vet said this was normal...

    Update on Trevor

    Hey guys just thought I would post an update on Trevor! He seem to be getting better and since I changes his cage around to something completely different he seems to be happier. He has been off for the last few day and seemed pretty dull but he was getting ready for a shed. I have...

    Pygmy Shedding Time Lapse

    Pygmies shed their entire skin within an hour or two! They split down the middle and then stretch their little heads and tails all around to loosen the split and eventually end up pulling it off! Sometimes they will eat the entire shed so you don't even know it happened. I got lucky and caught...

    Shedding?

    Is there a certain age veiled chams start their first shed? Mine was born in June, I got him 27th July and he hasn't shed yet. Is this normal? Thanks :)

    Gordon's first shed (with us!)

    Hello All, So I decided to take a random day off work yesterday. It turned out to be a great day to take off because my wife changed her flight back from Edmonton to be in the morning, so I could pick her up and hang out for the day. The other reason it turned out to be a good day to pick...

    shedding problem (ball python)

    My snake Taj is having troubles shedding completely. Whenever it is time for him to shed he sheds in small patches and never in a full body shed. The dead skin also gets stuck on his body, I leave a large bowl of water for him to soak in but it never seems to help. So far I've had to bath him...

    More pics of Zaphod (mitsio)

    Just wanted to show off a couple recent pics of my handsome fella. He's been this crazy-gorgeous jewel-toned spearminty green the past few days after he started shedding. It's funny, your think of all the cool colours chameleons can get and the greens seem so boring in comparison, but honestly...

    Zelig's shedding!

    Tee hee, I don't know. That's pretty much all I have to report, just a little excited, that's all, cause it means he's healthy & growing & stuff. :) First I was freaking out, cause I went to mist him and said "holy crap, what's the matter with his eye???" And then I went "ohhh!!!" And then I...
