when u first get a cham as a baby


New Member
even from breeders that ppl suggest, should u bring them to a vet for parasites, or have they already been checked b4 sold? I mean, where would captive bred chams pick up parasites? But i may sound stupid asking this, just wanted to kno and i dont kno much about parasites and where they live and come from etc...
LOL, can ne1 give me links or places where i can look at the chams of breeders that experienced owners suggest esp. where i can look at pics of what they r selling and contact info?
Parasites can be passed from one chameleon to another and they can also come from feeders. So, even from a respectable breeder, your cham may have parasites. I have had fecals done three times now for my panther just to ensure that he doesn't have any. With that said, most parasites are not that big of a deal. I have not treated my WC leaf chams for parasites, and I am sure that they have them. They are doing fine. It is when the chameleon is in compromised health that parasites will cause problems.
