Gold Child Ivy


New Member
I recently bought a Hanging plant for my chameleon, it is called golden child Ivy. The place I bought it from told me it was non-toxic to dogs and cats so they assumed it was probably nontoxic for chameleons too. I was just wanting to be sure is it safe for chameleons, should I switch it out for a Swedish ivy (which I know for a fact is non-toxic)?

Do you have a veiled that’ll try to eat it, or another type of chameleon? Not sure if it’s toxic or not, but if you have a veiled, better safe than sorry.

I tried some researching but found nothing helpful about it in regards to chams either, sorry. If I were you, I'd switch it for the one that's known to be cham safe. Always better to be safe.

*Edit to second that you fill out the care sheet, the advice here is gold.
