ok great i have seen some urate then i guess. So ill just make sure i keep seeing it. thx
if i dont see my chams drink from misting i use an eyedropper and give it to them by hand and make sure they drink a few refills of it..
How long are you misting? - In a couple of my chams, I have observed the following sequence:
1-2 minutes: - Eww! What's this?!? I hate it! (Moves out of water; possible vigorous headshake)
2-3 minutes (I don't chase cham, but continue misting where he had been)
2-4 minutes - Wait a minute - could that be water?
3-5 minutes - (Chameleon opens mouth a couple times) - Yes, I think it is water!
5+ minutes - Water! Yay! (Slurp, slurp, slurp)
I use water that is hot to the touch/lukewarm to warm when it's been dispersed by spritzing over a distance. My current male panther will spend a solid thirty minutes after misting licking every last drop of water off the leaves.
I just misted for atleast 3-4 mins and he finally stayed around the mist enough for me to see him lick his lips a few times and get water!! Man this is a great source for information!! Thx!!
