Hi everyone!
I just joined a little while ago. I currently own a veiled chameleon names Richard. He's quite the drama queen and camera shy to boot. So unfortunately no pictures of him. I also currently own 2 Australian Green Treefrogs, a Pacman Frog, a Ball Python and a Cornsnake.

I joined the forum because I want to continue how to properly care for my first veiled chameleon and how to make him as happy/comfortable as possible. I did try my best to do a lot of research though before I got him :).

Welcome to the forum! This is a wonderful place to get trusted information, advice and support to care for your cham in the best possible way! It's been super helpful for me and people have been very helpful with great advice. Just post your questions and also fill out a form for a husbandry review if you want some basic feedback on your setup and care thus far. All the best with Richard!!

Thank you! I'm excited to learn more! I've often used this site as a non member to help me find resources already! I just actually made a thread in the Enclosure and Supply Forum requesting advice and constructive criticism on my setup/enclosure! I'll have to look and find the husbandry review now also!

Thank you! Would I post this under the Husbandry: General Discussion Forum? I want to make sure I post it in the right place :) because I would love to get some feedback.

I think it's fine in either place - at least for me, when I visit the form, I like to see what's new, and maybe that's what other people do as well, regarding of what technical category it falls under.... but it is a husbandry thing:)

Isn't that oxymoronic?

Did you know HE joined the forum because he wants to know how to make you as miserable/uncomfortable as possible?

Reptiles... :rolleyes:

Welcome to the asylum! ? ?

He didn't used to be shy before he got a mild respiratory infection but he's a drama queen because he held his breath to the vet's dismay when he was getting diagnosed with the mild respiratory infection and theshe was trying to listen to his breathing. He was also understandably very bitey, but also refusing to let go of the washcloth we put in the bin to transport him (so he had something to grip) and was waving it at the vet techs. He's was indignant at the treatment!

I would not be surprised if HE did that ?. Thank you for the welcome!

That wasn't a washcloth; that was a security blanket! ?
