Thoughts for Food


Staff member
We now have the 5th edition available in our Chameleon Bookstore.

This is one of the best books on feeder care that I've ever seen. The original version was created years ago mostly by members of CiN (Chameleon Information Network) and edited by Ardi Abate. Ardi and Ken Kalisch are two of the biggest contributors that older chameleon keepers might recognize. We used to sell this resource years ago and I'm very happy to make it available again at Chameleon Forums.
