I have now had Fredo for 4 weeks. I have changed things up a bit.. I added a mistking a little over a week ago and now have a mini free range set up as well. Its just for him to explore and hang out for a couple hours on saturday and sundays when i'm home from work. I'd like to free range him all the time but as of right now.. he will only hunt down his food. no cups or hand feeding.

his diet now includes dubia.. I bought a colony and 25 extra feeders last saturday. Ate his first one today. BB flies, crickets, superworms. and meal worms and wax worms maybe one a week as a treat. all very well gut fed with a number of different fruits. calcium withOUT d3 everyday. with d3 twice a month (sundays) and multi vit. once a month. basking temps are between 82 and 85. humidity is at 40 and spikes to 70ish.

when he arrived he was 10 grams. he is now 19. Shows reds blues and greens but its hard to get a picture of it because every time i grab the camera he turns darker. he hates the camera. i was unsure of his exact age.. said he was between 3 1/2 and 4 1/2 months when he arrived. so now that i've had him a month i'll say he is 5 months.

week one pictures.








week two he had his first shed with me








Started my own superworm colony that week as well (well... i tried)




Week 3
Started my free range.



I'll have to continue in the next post. wont let me post anymore on this one,

week 4









I added a vine to go from his cage to the free range so he can choose where he is while i am home. Ignore that cup feeder. I have not tried it up there yet.






And their is his update. sorry its such a long post! but 4 weeks of stuff is.. a lot of stuff!

very cool!how did the super worm breeding go? Do you know what the plant next to the ficus benjamina is? just to make sure it is safe?

He is looking good! I like the photo of him on your hand, you can really see his colors starting to come in.

I bet he is happy on the free range too :)

Thanks for posting pictures

Thanks everyone.

Where did you get Fredo? He's a healthy looking pardalis. Nice idea for the free range shelf. Perfect for his size. ;);)
I got him from chamalotchameleons.com. AKA dez.

Thanks Dez. I am really happy with him. He is growing like crazy and a great temperament so far. Only thing i dont like is he is a picky eater! :D
