First Day

A face only a mother could love:

Baby female veiled chameleon

Actually, I take that back...veileds' mothers don't love them.

Anyway, this is this tyke's first day living here. She's the site's new mascot!

No name for her yet.

There's something pleasing about the curves and texture of the beastie (what I can see of the texture from the pic). A kinda 'stoic' look, too.

Help_i have a 3 week old chameleon and I'm totally confused by the pet stores and their non-knowledge of lighting- I have a "night" light for the chameleon but do I turn off the UV light at night-again a first timer really trying to make this work but confused by too many opinions, thanks

Hi. My chameleon is about 6 months old. Recently I've noticed that she is having problems climbing and moving around in general. I'm not sure what's wrong. I would really appreciate some advice as to what may be wrong with her.

Hey Jeff, I let my chameleon wander free while i am doing homework in my room, and she happened to catch a bee that was sitting by the window. I didn't have near enough time to fish it out of her mouth. I thought nothing of it at first, but ever since there has been a "growth" coming out of her rectum. it is pink and fleshy. she is eating some, but not nearly as much. she also has laid about 50 eggs between the time she ate the bee and now. is there anything that I can do about the protrusion?

HI, my cham is still very young, I noticed that he is having difficulty in walking and his grip seems to be very weak, he also sleeps alot. I suspect that he is sick but dont no how to treat him - what would be the best course of action here? Please understand that I live in south africa and vets dont tend to chameleons here.

Hey, just got a 4 month old veiled chameleon and to start off i must say, WOW!!!! They are amazing, i've wanted one for ever and after 1 day its exceeded my 'how cool' expectations! But on a serious note, im confused about my UV light. I think i read that it needs to be kept on for about 12-14 hours a day but i didnt feel confident turning it off for the night. He also seems quite timid, is this just because he naturaly is or because he is still settling in?

I just got a baby Chameleon about a week ago and I guess I have been doing everything wrong. The pet store I purchased him from was getting him down for me and dropped him about 6 feet or so to start off with. I said that couldn't be good for him and they said that wouldn't hurt him at all, then sold me a glass enclosure, had me put shreded bark on the bottom of it and told me to run a UVB light on him at all times. Well...last Saturday a little while after I sprayed him and fed him I glanced over at him and he was laying at the bottom dark in color and every so often looked as if he was gasping for air. He couldnt stand at all. I called a vet that handled reps they wanted him in but they were 1 hour away and I didn't think he'd make it. When he open his mouth I would spray a little water and it perked him up. He lightened in color 1/2 hr. later and he was standing up ok. Talked to another pet store and sold me a screen enclosure, cal. to dip the cric. in and until yesterday I thought he was better. He has lost his balance 2 times in new, taller enclosure, he doesn't open one eye at all (saw him itching it on log, doesnt look right) and the other eye he only opens on rare occ. He climbs his rope and stays there 24/7. hasn't eaten at all today. I am worried sick, I dont want him to die so please help.
Sincerely Michelle

i have a 3 week old chameleon and he lives in a average size cage. 18'lx12'Wx20'h seems a little to big from him, he is always on the top and it seems like he is to scared to down. the problems is that the crickets are always on the bottom, so im not sure if he is eating at all. So i dont know what to do!!!!!

Posted by: chatto at March 12, 2008 01:44 PM


She is sooooo cute!!!!!
any updated pics??

Looks like no one is answering any ones questions, but I guess that I could ask a quick one for the heck of it though no one is helping. Ok, I'm getting a cham- in just one week. I don't have any experience, and I've been reading articles and other stuff to kind of help me, but I'm mostly confused. I'm wondering if it's best to buy a cham- as a baby so that they can bond. Can they bond? I really don't know. I hope at least they can be social pets that you can hold because they sure are cute!!!

I was in a pet store 3 weeks back buying baby bearded dragons for my nephews when I felt something crawling up my back. As an owner of a few tarantulas not much creeps me out. But having something clutching my shirt as is climbed my back was creepy. When I was finally able to get someones attentions to help me figure it out she was already on my shoulder and had attached herself to my neck with her tiny little nails. Now by all reports Veiled Chameleons are aggressive by nature and 'Missy' as I have named her refused to be removed from my person. So I am now the proud owner of a female veiled chameleon that is extremely friendly to me and no one else. She does get testy when other people come near her. Is it normal for chameleons to choose their owners like this or is she special?

Hey, I bought a baby Female Vieled Chameleon about a month back and everythings fine accept for the fact that she doesn't like to be handled inside her vivarium and does try to bite, but if she's taken out on an object she's fine when she's outside her tank. Is this normal and is there any techniques I can do to make her more friendly, thanks email me on rhyd_trezise@hotmail.co.uk
Thanks :D
