The more and more I read on chameleon illnesses I see that veileds are the most likely of all species to acquire an abscess. Any thoughts or genuine facts on why this is ?
I don't see more Chamaeleo calyptratus with abscesses than other species at clinic. Think that just looks like this because the veiled chameleon is one of the most common and kept chameleon species. There exist a lot more papers about diseases in Chamaeleo calyptratus than in other species, but it doesn't mean this species is more prone to sickness or anything, it's just wider spread as pet.
