It is awful to sell a cham then it not be cared for. I sold a pair of quads to another forum member and he pretty much cooked both of them. I still feel awful that it happened. My poor babies.Oh my god you must feel terrible knowing that one of your little dudes is sick! I know I would feel so awful. Poor little guy, I hope he makes it and pulls through.
He lost a parson's also? While all chams deserve proper treatment regardless of value, that is sickening and smacks of someone who shouldn't have any species in their care. I'm curious, what was the light you sold to him? Do you know if it was one of the "safe" cfs? Doesn't guarrantee he used it however.yeah he only wants help, i gave him a care sheet and sold him the bulbs and complete setup so all i can think of is it being is no feeding enough or his temps and hydration. He had a parsons that died also I told him to look for a vet and he will update me in a few days.
He needs to be slapped so that he can see that that is not a healthy Cham. Sorry for being so direct but it saddens me so much to see a Cham in that condition when given the right cage and supplies, it's actually not hard at all to take care of one Chameleon. I think he's just lazy... Again, sorry and hope the dude realizes the severity of the situation and acts on it.Yeah i stressed all this stuff to him when i sold him, the lights were 5.0 reptisun. 18"
This is the first of many i have ever had die or had a problem with that i have sold to someone. But i do believe 95% of the problem, under fed and not enough hydration. But he told me that he looks good just weak, so he thought the pics he sent me were of a good looking cham.
Man what a shame. He's beautiful male ambi too. Sounds like the buyer has more $$$ than common sense. Cant he see the poor things dehydrated? I can look at his front limbs and see that he's not muscular, like he should be. You can see that he's not been eatting/fed. Im guessing he only feeds cricks and he probably doesnt gutload at all.
a vet really needs to see this cham. in the meantime i would change uvb (its been six months). make sure he has correct basking temps and force reptaid, water and a pinch of reptocal multi. also have him put him in the shower with warm water mist to help the eye.
a bit off topic...is this a cham you hatched? if so can i see pics of the male and female?
At the very least give him some links to pics of HEALTHY panthers at this age!!! If he can't see the difference then chams are simply not a good choice for him to keep. Now if he wants to feel hurt fine...swallow your pride, learn the lesson, and do what it takes to save this little guy or give him to someone who will.He needs to be slapped so that he can see that that is not a healthy Cham.

Ive been in a similar situation before. Ive sold at shows in the past when I was breeding yrs ago. I had someone call me 3-4 months later and ask me why their cham didnt turn out to look like the sire and accusing me of selling them a runt because it wasnt growing at a normal rate.Yeah and i dont think he knows the difference in a healthy chameleon, and a sick chameleon. He said he has never Supplemented since he got him, after i recommended repcal multi vit. and calcium. He is hurt because he doesn't understang what he did wrong but common since you should know if your pet is under fed.
