Yes do not get a Senegal! The price sounds a bit too much also. They go for about $30 but the reason they are so cheap is because they are all wild caught. A Senegal was my first chameleon and it died in a month. I took him to the vet and got a round of 6 shots and fed him through a syringe for the entire time then he finally died. They are not good chams to take care of.

i wouldn't get a veiled either as a first time cham. they tend to be aggresive. if you want something i'd say start out with a panther if you want color and size. but I have fischers and they are cool as heck so are jacksons!!!

Not all veileds are aggressive (mine weren't) and because they are pretty hardy they DO make a good first chameleon. Their temp and humidity requirements are a bit easier for newbies to handle. Jackson's and Fischer's are not as easy to acclimate. They need cooler temps, higher humidity, and their nutritional needs are trickier to get right.
