  • Chameleons

    How many of you here care for Chameleons? I saw some at Petco yesterday for $50. I so thought about picking one up, but I realized that I really don't know how to properly care for them. How hard are they to care for? Anything special that is needed to be known about them? I know that they are solitary creatures and need to be housed seperatly and that they need UV lights, but is there anything else. Anyone know of a site that has a very good care guide?

    8)Evil heres few links for ya.. what kind of chameleon did ya see?? All of them should be provided with a water drip system. Almost all chameleons need high humididty but there are few that require less. Youl have to check into each species care.. They also have a safe plant list on this first link..

      They were veiled chameleons!! So cute. I got to hold all three of them, They were so tiny!!! Only about 2 inches long!! I love their little hands and those eyes !!!! That'd be so kool if you could see the back of your head!!! Thanks for the links, I'll have to do some studing up before I make a decision!!!

        Those are some very good sites!! Lots of very usefull info. I think I'm going to have to agree with one of the sites and hold off on getting one, untill I get a bigger house and more cash flow to be able to support one. But they are very cute and some very pretty colors.

          i had them and traded them... I couldnt enjoy watching them eat.. cause of my work schedule and the fact. that they get all nerved out when your watching them. mine would hide from ya instead of eating. which watching them eat is the only reason for having them for me atleast..

            I like to watch chameleons because of their slow nature.

            It also interests how their brain processes two images, one for each eye... It's amazing how each eye can move in different directions and the chameleons can see two pictures.

              I agree with Jeff. They do have a slow nature but I've seen mine book it on occasion. I like it when mine hang upside down from a branch or leaf with the tail wrapped around it and then watching them pick off the crickets on the bottom of the cage one by one. I think the tail is really cool. They are so strong too. I've seen one wrap it's tail around a branch and raise it's whole body up to a branch much higher, grab on with one hand and pull the whole body up with just that one hand!! To me, watching them eat isn't the only thing cool to see. But hey, to each man his own right.

                Out of all my animals, I must say that I enjoy watching my Veiled more than any of the others. They are so methodical about their every step. I just wish I could snap a pic quickly enough to get them feeding!

                  Hey Kahaj, it is really hard to get a picture of them eating so I pulled out my video camera and was able to get some footage. It's so fast though, I have to put it on slow-mo just to see it. The tongue is not even out of his mouth for a full second it's so fast. But still truly amazing!! And I agree with you, they are my favorite to watch. I could EASILY spend a whole hour just watching them. I just posted some pictures in case you're interested. ;D
