Kinda Upset :(

Hello all!
Well my new project has slightly been hindered for the time being. The older male passed away in the past three days. I was out of town, and the person who was looking after them did not notice the little one not being there. I am very upset because it looks like it was painful. My guess is that he choked to death because he bit his tongue and the muscle in the back was blocking the airway when I opened his mouth. This is rough for me because I traded my verrucosus pair for him and the other little guy, and now it seems like I only got one in the deal. But, he was a healthy chameleon, so it was not a sickness to which caused his death, at least I am guessing.

I don't know why, that's what is so hard. He was eating, drinking, and pooping fine. I guess it was a freak accident. I am glad I found him already gone, seeing him choke to death would have been terrible.

Thanks for all of the nice words everyone

I'm so sorry to hear that. There's nothing worse than losing a cham/pet, but it's even worse when you have big plans for it/them.
