here is a pic of a two headed chameleon, it sadly didn't live long but is super cool
as anyone had something happen like that before
for some reason only one of heads acted like it was a live
The one that started moving only had one eye
So that's really sad but would have been awe if it had lived.
Could have been a case of a parasitic twin since you said only 1 head acted alive
poor thing. it is good it passed away so fast
No offence to the OP, but I don't think this would be cool at all. The poor little thing would have had a miserable existence however long or short.
When it tried to move the two front legs went above his head
and the back legs were trying to scooting itself along the floor
This is a baby from your chams??? I would probably not breed again, because based off of your previous post many of the babies are not living, so I think you should try to figure out why its happening and try to prevent from happening again
From a biology standpoint, this is really cool. This is the first time i've seen a two headed chameleon of any species.
Interesting, but me personally I don't find it cool. Maybe if it survived and thrived it would be cool, but nature can be cruel. Not attacking your opinion, just stating mine.
I can definitely see how it can be cruel or sad... Not everyone is interested in biology and genetic mutations! Surviving and thriving is... very unlikely for any species with this mutation, especially with a parasitic twin. It's cool to see but it's horrible to think about.
I might have been to save it by helping it a little but i was to late to save it when i tried to save him
If it makes you feel any better it probably wasn't fit to survive and even with help few of these "twins" ever do for long.
Conjoined and/or parasitic twins are biologically interesting but I agree with the others. Based on this and your other post about a mystery death and the photo of the chameleon that passed something is seriously wrong with either the genetics (which is beyond your control other than not breeding the same two chams that produced this mutation) or the conditions in which they live. I know jackson's can be tricky but there are a lot of experienced keepers here so I would heed their advice.
merry christmas everyone
hopefully i can get a better outcome next time when i am caring for baby jaxs
