Hi! I wanted to give an update with my chameleon so I could get some feedback on if there is anything I am doing wrong! In January he was only 8 grams and today he is 13 grams! He is much more active and loves exploring! He went on his first vacation to my grandparents house and he did amazing!! He is still handfed and still does not seem very interested in eating on his own, however, he eats perfectly fine when handfed! He will be about 6 months old next week! He is currently shedding for the 3rd time since I have gotten him! He loves taking showers and has become more willing to be handled! His face still looks the same and he seems unbothered by it! I want to thank all of you for all the help you have given me throughout his journey so far! It means so much to me and Greg!

Good to hear he's gaining weight!
Can you post some photos of him now please?
It would be good if he could use his tongue. It worrie me that he might be having a nutrient issue that's stopping him from using it? What supplements do you use specifically...and how often for each? What do you feed/gutload the insects with?

Hi! I am attaching photos of him and the calcium powders I give him! He gets the repti calcium everyday and gets the repashy once a week. on the days he gets repashy he doesnt get the repti calcium. I got bsfl and wax worms from Joshs Frogs and on the care sheets it didn't say anything about feeding the worms so I haven't given them any. They come in coconut soil and I got a 50 count 2 weeks ago and the ones that are still left are all still alive! I dont know if they eat the coconut soil or if I just got lucky. What should I be feeding them?
