New Chameleon Owner! Excited to be here!

Just saying hi! I don't have any questions right now but I'm sure I will have lots. This forum was a huge help when I was deciding on getting him and how to care for him. So I just wanted to say thank you and hello! I would just love to meet some of the community! I am very excited to have my first chameleon and to be part of this community!

Hello there and welcome! Your Cham is a handsome one for sure! If you need any help just ask but first would you mind just going to the health clinic forum and clicking the pinned link above it called “ how to ask for help” and just fill out the form there so we are familiar with your Cham in case you do need any help? We would appreciate it a lot.
