Ok so why do you people have so many problems i was thinking this was a proffesional site ?
ok that was just to gain attention. Im new to owning a chameleon but i researched lots. Read lots of books. Then i set up my terrarium and now i have a fantastic Veiled chameleon. Pics are now on this site. But i aint no newbie when it comes to reptiles. From some of the posts i read on this site you owners just need to chill out. let your new buddy settle in, in his, hers own way. The resullts are rewarding my chameleon only had him 2 months now loves to come out be petted etc. I will add i make an effort to handle him every day
Well thats just where inexperience comes in and also big part of it is just being worried and concerned, even if nothing to be concerned about, they just want to make sure everything is normal and they are doing the right thing
I chose to believe this is a joke. Chameleons do not enjoy being "petted". They are not a cat or a dog. If you have researched and read lots of books, could you explain where you got the idea you could pet your chameleon? Just me wanting to understand.
No humour and sorry ive offended people but i am a person who does not suffer fools gladly. I am a new owner of a Chameleon but not new to reptiles mammals etc.Dave - I do not really understand what you are after here. Humor? Just something to do because you're bored? First you insulted the site (which is the first thing that other newcomers like yourself will read and it doesn't cast anything in a good light), then proclaimed yourself as a new owner, now are insulting people who don't do the research. It's one of the reasons people aren't comfortable posting on this site. I guess I just don't see your goal. Why not just introduce yourself in a normal way like everyone else does? I'm not trying to be obnoxious here or enforce any rules, I guess your style of intro just left a sour taste after reading it...
I call "troll".
This site is immensely helpful. I became member a few months before owning a panther. Now I own 9, have had a successful breeding, hope to raise young, and I am still learning something new every single time I visit. You will not find a better resource, from beginner to veteran, anywhere IMO.
