Unfortunately my guy is on his last breaths
He may have been sick but it was likely your flawed husbandry that lowered his immune system.He did die because of me!...until a week ago he was find he got sick!
It is not a matter of being harsh and all anyone was doing was giving you the feedback on why your Cham got "sick" and died. This way if you do decide to get another one which a lot of people do that it does not happen again to you. Because if you do not fix the cage, lighting, hydration, heat, feeders, etc the next one will die. They are very fragile and require their husbandry to be perfect or they go downhill fast and die. So yes you got the wrong advice and found the forum too late to correct the issues causing the health issues for your Cham.Wow you guys are harsh...peace out
i doubt that chameleons get the same sicknesses as humans maybe one or two threads couuld be spread but the cham cannot get sick because of a sick humanHe only could’ve gotten sick from you if YOU were sick and you held him. But you don’t seem like that type of irresponsible owner. You tried and you looked for help and you communicated well which is a lot more than what other people do
humans do not share the same bio build as a chameleon much less the same immune system, they enzymes that make us sick often times cannot be spread to any other species since we are all built differently to adapt to environment, i used to think the same thing so its ok, now you knowOh lol. Idk, someone told me that. I still try to avoid handling him when I’m sneezing and coughing though
We aren't trying to be harsh but the reality is there are multiple husbandry issues that could have contributed to your chameleons health decline. Chameleon from petco and petsmart are often the product of over breeding and poor conditions before they even get to the stores where their care isn't much better. All too often we see petco chameleons seem happy and healthy one day then the next they are extremely ill. Chameleon will hide any illness or health issue until they can no longer stay composed which is often too late for us keepers to do anything.Wow you guys are harsh...peace out
