    Tongue Issues :(

    Hi all, Recently Mowgli has been having some tongue issues. It seems like he's perfectly healthy in every other way except this. He's been passing poo fine and just pooped a huge, healthy looking, hydrated poop today. I'll post pictures of that, too, in case the poo isn't as healthy-looking as...

    Tongue Use Question

    I have a 10 month old male panther chameleon, and I have a question about his tongue. When he eats on his own, loose bugs in the cage, he occasionally misses, but otherwise, is fine. When I hand feed him, it seems like his tongue doesn't fully extend and when it does, it's not "sticky." That is...

    Is Iggy eating sand!?!????

    My veiled female (somewhere between 8 and 11 months old) is currently sitting on a branch over her nesting box and repeatedly flicking her tongue out onto the sand. There aren't any bugs down there!!! She has never taken any interest in going into or near her box, and now all at once she is...

    Funny Thing Happened, Question?

    :eek: Well, today I tried hand-feeding my little Milton some wax worms, and all was fine and fun and games, until he missed and his tongue got stuck to my finger. He couldn't pull his tongue off, so he reeled himself in like reverse fishing, and snap! He latched onto my finger! My questions...

    Tongue damaged?

    I noticed today that my female veiled has what seems to be a damaged tongue. She is hungry and keeps shooting at food but the end of her rather that shoots out straight it flops around from the side then doesn't stick to the food. It seems like its not returned to the mouth properly. It is also...

    Chameleon Tongues And How They Work. A brief explanation on the mechanics.

    As an owner of chameleons it has fascinated me that they're tongues are used with such speed, grace and precision.

    I'm a horrible Cham mommy :(

    I've really debated on posting this but my hope is maybe one day it will help someone else. My WC Senegal juvenile that hasn't been acclimating very well had a major accident night before last. He has only eaten 6 crickets in the 2 weeks he has been with me and even with misting 4 times a...

    This is how you eat without a tongue

    My veiled injured his tongue 2 years ago when it got stuck on a stray piece of wire from the screen in his cage (which is why I don't use metal screen anymore) and since then it won't shoot straight. It was kind of funny watching it shoot off in the wrong direction but he got so discouraged he...

    Missing the "Target" with Tongue

    Greetings: We have a new female ambilobe that has was cup fed and we would like to free-range her. My concern comes because she has difficulty hitting the "target" with her tongue. She seems to always strike above the target... as much as a dozen times before she gets very close and nails...
