Okay i'm ready to get my first chameleon what do the experts suggest as far as getting for species? I really love the panther chameleon i just feel a bit nervous because i've never kept one before. I feel as though i'm educating myself befor i get one and getting the habitat ready as well. wire mesh cage, 5.0 reptisun tube, misting system, heat basking source, digital thermometer are all on the way. Is there any advantage in getting a veiled first to get so experience with them prior to a keeping a panther or is their care pretty much the same? I would definately prefer a panther for sure, i just love them!!! Is getting a older panther a better idea to start off? which age would be the best for me and type?
