Wow I swear, with so many gorgeous Chams, I had no idea just how addictive this would become lol.
Oh man it is very very addictive! Ill tell you this.. i used to be a bodybuilder wich is one of the most addictive "sports" out there.. used to workout 6 days e week and eat 6-7 times a day plus spending all my money in gear and food. Ever since i started with my Chameleons that has dropped down to 2 to 3 days workouts per week and 3 meals a day. Now my time and energy is more focused on my little Chamsss taking good care of then and learbing how to do so its a huge investment not just $$$ but some serious time!!

I can relate with this. I was never a bodybuilder, but serious lifter and got into mma/boxing for a few years. Used to spend every free minute I had towards eating/cooking, training, or reading about what I could do better. I tend to obsess and go all in with things. Had some health problems slow me down and my wife will be having a baby soon so I got thrown off that kind of commitment, but now it's changed to cham keeping.

Yes sir! I believe that. Haha have a question how hard is to keep a Parson as pet? Is it the same as a Panther Chameleon?
It depends, I have a CH parson's but I hear WC can be very difficult. A lot don't have success with the WC's. They do not handle change well. An enclosure change, or setting change seems to put them in a funk for a few weeks IME. They can be picky eaters, get huge, need a large variety of large feeders when they're older, tons of water, montane requirements, and brumate during winter months.

I'd say with proper research, a huge space(most keepers have them in custom small room sized enclosures, tons of water(mine gets around an hour of misting a day), and some good outside time that they're not too difficult. It's like keeping a montane chameleon, but just everything you need is more and larger.

No, no... mine is still young lol. I was just saying that as a general statement. Though there are OE's that have reached ~900grams if I remember correctly. YL's are usually larger from what I hear, so I doubt that's too uncommon for them.
