Hi,

I've had my Nosy Be for about a month now. He seems to be eating, and drinking well. If there are any experienced handlers that read this, I would like to invite your opinion on his appearance. To let me know if he looks healthy and such. Or if you have any recommendations or possible pro tips on raising them at this age.

- Gut load crickets with potato and carrots
- Dust with calcium + multi vit lightly daily
- Dust calcium with D3 every other week
- plenty of crickets in his cage, no cup feeding. (I have small station where crickets can climb out and roam top of cage for easier feeding.)
- Medium mist twice a day, small mist random
- 48x24x24 screen cage with 14 inch umbrella plant
- Zoo Med PowerSun UVB 100 Watt (hanging 1 1/2ft from cage)
- Temps at top of cage 90-100F, Bottom 75-85F

Maybe lower the basking temps just by 5-10 degrees until he is around 8 months old. And lower the multivitamin and d3 to 2 times a month.

Other than that I have nothing to change. And he looks stunning!

You may want to try different gutload, some dandelion leaves, mustard greens, squash to add some nutrition value and vitamins. Here are some great blogs on gutloading https://www.chameleonforums.com/blogs/sandrachameleon/. You probably don't have to dust with multi vit daily, usually it's twice a month, and the same is for calcium with D3. Also I agree regarding the temperature - seems too hot.

Good luck with your chameleon, he is very handsome!
 
As they have already covered with the dusting- as long as your Cham has the right bulb, you don't need calcium everyday i would suggest doing it every other day. You don't want to over supplement the little guy. We recently had a thread here on edema and we believe the cause to be from over supplementing. Just remember your feeders should already have quite a bit of calcium in them so just be careful.
But you are doing a great job! He looks good.
