Soo... I was walking along... Spied something über pretty out of the corner of my eye in the oleander.... What the heck is THAT!? I exclaimed!!! For it moved when I came closer.... Put my hand in the bush after getting a glove on... And out walks a very pretty male veiled subadult chammie!!! A little on the thin side... Was pretty dehydrated... And VERY dry and unhappy I took him from his bush.... But now, he's in a makeshift cage, with plenty of moisture, and food.... Fatten this bad boy up!!! Get him a girlfriend! Oh yeah!!! Make some purdy babies!!! Will post some pix tomorrow. But the vet done said he's pretty healthy and his color mutation is "hypo"??? Or something like that...?

He's been hiding and hissing at me. But I took my chances at being bitten and placed a nice juicy roach near him and ZAP!!! Out went that tongue of his!!! He ate it like he never ate in his life.! Gonna try a dusted larger one later one.... This was a relatively small large... And he ate it too quick for my taste... SOOO glad I have a colony!!!

He looks ok!

A bit skinny, well a lot skinny,but some nice fat bugs will fix him right up.

You still interested in that female of mine?

Honestly Rango is normally a lame/over done name for a chameleon, but this guy is honestly Rango! Found in the desert probably looking for some water!

Congratulations on your find and being a great new owner! Best of luck. :)

A female veiled...! I may still buy one from you but since I found "Rango" she said I needed a "Beans". LOL!!! But at first she grabbed a male, so I snagged a female from her batch, and tossed the lil guy back in.

Just as a heads up males and females should only be housed together once sexually mature or else they will stress one another.

I only say that because I do not know if you have two separate cages.
