Im a new member here officially but I've been reading posts on here off and on for almost a year now. I was originally planning on a panther or male veiled but while doing my homework and trolling my local store, I was offered an amazing deal on a female veiled chameleon that I couldn't pass up. The store owner said she is about 6 months old but she's probably younger, she's pretty small maybe 5 inches and was brought in by a customer who had no idea of what she was doing. I've ordered a large reptarium so I can add the"egg box" for when that time comes . Im an avid herp and salt water aquatic guy and he said he knew she would be going to a good home if I got her so he said 180 and you can have her and the set up. She's currently in a 16x16x30 screen cage. I have a basking light, 5.0uvb the big dripper. Her temper is good and she seems very curious as to what im doing but this is day one, eats like a champ etc etc. I added some extra wood and 3 live plants(based on what I've read should be good as long as she doesn't eat too much of them. A devils ivy (pathos), an umbrella plant(Schefflera arboricola) and a dracaena. I dont have a drainage system mainly because its not really an option right now so I have a small container that catches the run off from the dripper. I included a couple pics cuz we all love pics so..for all you chameleon pro's, what do you think?

I am having a bit of trouble finding compatible indoor plants for Veiled cham's due to the fact that they are fairly big plant munchers and ive read that the umbrella plant and the devils ivy are fine and then ive read that they arent, so far shes snacked on a couple of the leaves of the umbrella plant but just two but like i said this is day one...

Nice, well she's a good looking Cham, I looked at her when she first came in. Her limbs appeared straight, eyes looked good and mouth was good. That adult male veiled down there was mine that I traded for a ambanja female.

Ha yeah I got that male ambilobe as a breeder last week. There is some killer deals in the for sale section from panther from breeders on this site, sometimes they are as low as 150, and pretty much all locals. Also I've have babies for sale later this year from two different bloodlines.
