have any of you ever refused to sell one of your chameleons to someone because you thought the cham wouldnt be cared for properly or for other reasons???just curious....
It's so sad that unfortunately, you are of the few and far between. So many of these pet stores are just wanting the $ and too many people just want chameleons for the novelty of it. Thank goodness for the forums I say, but good on you for screening peeps. I would do the same. I would rather have a house of full of chams before selling to someone that won't do any researh and care for them properly.That would be a yes. I know several of us who will not sell to anyone who has no idea what they are doing and no desire to learn before they buy chams. I am one of those.
If you truly care about your babies be very careful where they go. When I breed my pet veileds I was extremely picky and made allot of people mad but who cares. I wanted good home for them because I loved each and every one of those precious little babies. I didn't care about making money. I just wanted them to have kind, loving and forever homes. Even as picky as I was some of the homes where they were placed I was very disappointed with and wish I could have got the babies back. The people that I homed them with looked so good when I gave them a baby but ended up not being good at all. It's especially hard with veileds because they are breed to death. Some people constantly over breed the females and then sale the babies for like $20.00. It's disgusting. Veileds are truly wonderful chameleons and so underrated and so very underpriced. That's why we see them on here dying all the time.
How could you not love these precious little ones begging for their mama to hold them?
If they haven't had a cham before but are interested and do the research (and can prove it) then I won't necessarily say no to those.
I work at a chain petstore and I refuse sales if I know people are not going to invest in the necessities (aka lights, proper size enclosure, etc.) to keep their pet alive and happy. Half the people coming in are like "What? Just 40 dollars for a lizard? I want to buy it." When in reality we all know it costs you way more than that and a lot of your time to care for the animal properly.
you are very welcome when you are excited for the person to have your cham, and not worried, that is a good feeling , and you know its the right person
I have someone coming Sat/ to pick up a little guy who just needs a good home- I am excited I am just giving him the cham, its one of those cases that I KNOW the cham will have a GREAT home, and you can not put a price on that, and I never even knew the babies were coming, their birth was an unexpected gift to me from Olive anyway ( she's such a good girl ) anyway, I am sure you will do fine when it comes to picking new parents for your babies
and Jann- OMG- those little guys are SOOOOO cute !!
Ive never paid less than $150 for my veiled's thank you very much
Wow its been a while since ive bought a veiled. I still remember saving up for my first veiled because i didnt want to get one of those cheap parsons that werent very hardy.
