Hi, does anyone have any good information or pictures of Chamaeleo quadricornis? I love these but cant seem to find any info about them.

Thanks

All I can say is wow! That is without a doubt the most beautiful chameleon I have ever seen, I cant get over the colors! Thanks for the link, I think I may spend some time just staring at that :D

That first pic is a really unhappy or displaying quad. Normally the colors will be less extreme, mostly green background. IMO, quads are one of the coolest species to work with (that are still imported.) Beautiful, relatively hardy, some can be quite personable, and of decent size. Big males with 6 or 8 horns are truly impressive. They like it cool with lots of misting and are not too difficult to breed although eggs must be kept cool. The incubation time is one of the shortest of all the true chameleons and the hatchlings are larger too. Haha, need any more reasons to try them? stickpoke.gif

Hi, poor choice of words on my part if you felt I was implying he wasn't being cared for properly. I meant that he was either displaying at another male (unhappy) or at a female (happy). Got any eggs from them?

Thanks for all the info guys, I cant believe how beautiful they are in all their different colors that they have.

Good luck with the breeding TreelionsUK, hope you get lots of little ones:)

Noooo Luke, none must die:(
I hope all the others do well. After reading one of the replys on this thread I recon your babies could be here sooner than you thought (one of the shortest incubation times for true chameleons he said).
I am glad everyone is backing me up on how beautiful that male Quad is as Luke prefers Panthers and nearly sold Winston!!:rolleyes:
