Hi cop and welcome to the board. You've come to the right place for info. You are correct in that you should do your homework/research and when you think you've done enough, do some more. If you've never had a cham b4 then you will definitely need to research and ask questions. They are incredibly beautiful creatures but fairly high maintanance and pretty costly to get started with the right set up, etc. Do you homework and if/when you are ready to purchase one make sure you purchase from a reputable, experienced breeder and not impulse from a pet store. You'll be better off in the long run.
