Jackson’s Cham


In another thread I mentioned that I wanted to go with a Veiled Cham. My first choice was a Jackson’s. I just couldn’t find any anywhere and decided to go with Veiled. Anyone know where I can find a Jackson? I’ve read where it’s said that Jackson’s are hard to come by these days.Not sure which one I’ll be going with as I’ve become quite fond of the Veiled.Thanks much . Chammy007

What are they doing with the field collected veileds in Florida? That might be one source.


You should check out https://www.facebook.com/groups/jacksonschameleon/ or if you are not on FB contact @DeremensisBlue and he can set you up with someone who has hand raised juvenile's of Kenyan direct bloodlines. Yes, this would be ok for anyone who seriously wants a quality Jacksonii xantholophus or yellow crested jackson's.
Do you know of anyone who has these for sale?https://www.backwaterreptiles.com/chameleons/jacksons-chameleon-for-sale.html These are my favorites.thanks much.Also any recommendations for setting up a habitat for Jackson’s? Cage size, lighting etc. thanks again. chammy007


That is a "Xanth" I would avoid backwater like the plague.
Males do best in a 2'x2'x4' females can do a little smaller but would love the larger size. Lighting T5 linear 6% UVB and a 6500K in a dual fixture and a 40-50 Watt basking bulb. https://www.chameleonforums.com/care/caresheets/jacksons/ and https://www.chameleonforums.com/care/caresheets/jacksons/
Where could one find a chammie such as the one from backwater. Such as these: https://www.backwaterreptiles.com/chameleons/jacksons-chameleon-for-sale.html
Thanks much.chammy007

If you try the facebook route just put up a post that says "in search of" or "wanting to give a home to" and they will pm you with what they have and prices since selling animals on FB is not allowed.
