Jackson vs. Veil -- Help!


New Member
I am buying a chameleon in the next couple of weeks, but I am torn between a Jackson and a Veil. I would really appreciate any information to persuade me one way or the other.

Thank you!

If this is going to be your first Cham... I would recommend a Veiled. There are aspects of a Jacksons care that are a little bit more in depth compared to a Veiled. Jacksons need cooler temps and higher humidity.

My first one was a female veiled. She lived to the ripe old age of 6 (and this was 10 years ago).

Her hardiness helped when I made my beginner mistakes. And because of this I was able to learn without the disappointments of her becoming sick or worse.

I have now moved on to my Panther, but it's because of little Widget that I advanced from beginner to well I'd say an intermediate cham owner now.
