Oustalet Update!


New Member
Oscar is now 3 1/2 months old and I have had him for a month now. He just went through his first shed. Compared to the Veiled's he is a slow grower considering that my now 3 month old female Veiled is easily 4 times his size! He has a wonderful personality! He is sometimes shy, but will sometimes stand his ground and puff out his little red chin, and sometimes will even step out on my hand. He certainly does not eat like the Veiled's, who will nearly charge me to get at the food. I rarely see him eat, but sometimes I will "disable" a cricket just to see him eat where he does a little bouncy up and down dance before he lines up the bug and shoots his tongue. He is certainly an enjoyable little creature and I am looking forward to him growing a bit more so I can stop worrying!

He is an Oustalet's Chameleon (Furcifer oustaleti). Commonly called Giant Madagascar Chameleons.
