In my dreams I have carpet chameleons, Jacksons, Parsons, Brookesia micra, trioceras montium and let’s throw a Kinyongia on that list. However, reality has graciously provided me with my beautiful veileds and a handsome panther.
Sorry Jeremy all I have are 3 Veileds. Nothing interesting or different here.
I agree. But I do have a wish list... I think for me starting out with more common species that there is a ton of info on was more fitting. I stress too much and if I got any of my dream chams I would be a wreck if there was not a lot of info out there. I am hopeful that in the future I will have the skill set and confidence to dive into keeping the other species that I love.Beman Sorry. I not trying to put anyone on the spot. I am just attempting to regain some more range of species to the photo contests. That is something I think they are lacking. For me it is a variety is a spice of life type thing.

I love the many different characteristics that the less common chams have. Last year when I got my first chameleon, it was something I just kind of stumbled into. Perhaps in time and with more experience, I’ll be able to fulfill some of my dreams.I have kept all those species except the Brookesia. I have to say I have considered picking up a pair of Brookesia. Although that has taken the best part of three decades for me to accomplish. That goal of keeping those species is not something to give up on at all. There are plenty of other colorful species of chameleons out there that are not endangered species that should be available for chameleon keepers to purchase. There are other chameleon species with spectacular colors. Those of you that are attracted to Veileds and Panther chameleons colors. The genus Bradypodion, Trioceros, Kinyongia and Furcifer are good places to look.
As I have stated before though. For me chameleons are not all about just fancy colors. Rostral blades, horns, tye dye colors, gular crest, dorsal crest (sail fins), and giant size make them spectacular to me. Those chameleons are not being represented in the photo contests.
