Good morning, Chameleon world! I wanted to share an interview I had with Frank Payne. Frank is one of our community's most experienced breeders and is one of the leaders in the effort to establish Furcifer minor in captivity. One thing that is special about this interview is that, not only do we learn about Furcifer minor and how to care for it, we get an insight into the husbandry and methods used by Frank across his entire chameleon collection. Long time breeders have had the time to distill their husbandry to what is necessary and what works. They are able to tweak subtle elements and are able to observe the results over years. So anytime I can get a view into what they have learned it is always enlightening!
