Had no luck with Jackson's, Veiled or other chameleons, but for the last 4 years had Fischers and they are wonderful, so easy and friendly, not at all afraid. I just got 2 Gracefuls and they are so lovely. If anyone has them, I could use some info about what works for you.

Hi,I would like to have a chameleon but I hear that they don't live too long and are expenceve. Would this be a good starter(low price, easy care) chameleon or would I be better off with a different type like the senegal chameleon? Here are the reptiles I'm taking care of:spotted turtle,garter snake,eastern ribbon snake,I took care of 3 snapping turtles, and i have a ball python who I believe is a female named snake and would like to breed her.

    They say the lifespon for the Panther Chamameleon is around 5 years so I looked up the Bearded Dragon for you and their life span is about 7 - 8 years. I never had a Panther but did have the Bearded and I liked that fella. He was so neat, liked attention and would just look at me with those big eyes. They come in many colors and I loved mine. So I thought I'd pass on the info. You sure have enough experience to handle just about whatever you get --- Iguanas are really awesome and they live longer but they can get extremely large - 3 feet or more - but they come in a variety of colors and some are just so handsome. Now there lifespan can easily go 25 years.

    These guys are not too hard to take care of. As long as they get frequent mistings for water they normally do fine. Bearded dragon or iguana is a better choice if you are looking for easy to care for. Savanah monitor is also a great on and tames down like a dog if given enough attention.

Does anyone know what the 'healthy weight' for breeding in a T. jacksonii xanthalopus female is?

    Not sure what the best weight is, but here's an overview to draw some insight which may be of help. This subspecies of Jackson Chameleon, known as the Yellow-crested Jackson's Chameleon, is fairly small, and males tend to be larger than females. Their adult size is in length is about 7 4/5' (20 cm), and they only weigh about 25-35 grams. They are generally ready to breed at about 9-12 months of age. Males can be bred earlier than females, but it's suggested for females to wait until 12 months and be sure she is in optimal condition due to the great physical demand that egg development puts on her.

    Thanks for the info, unfortunately i'm not sure how much that would help. :/ I have two girls who are the same age, but vary in size coz one is a really picky eater, i've never seen her eat more than two items per day regardless of food type or feeding method. Other than size she seems perfectly healthy and active. They'll both be a year old in november. Oh well, i guess i'll give her a few more months to catch up.. :) Thanks again for the reply! :)

I have a male veiled Chameleon that I've had for about a year possibly longer, I've noticed that he hasn't been as bright a green as often. I recently purchased him a new cage since he's been growing and he seems to only go darker when inside his new cage. He goes back to his usual pretty green when he's out though. Maybe I'm just being paranoid, or maybe it's just the lighting? I'm not sure, but if there is anything that anyone can think of that could be wrong or anything like that it'd be much appreciated. I just want him to live a happy healthy long life.

I have a problem I cant find any reference to. Our baby Tiny Elvis is 6 mos old male when we bought him what looked like his penis was sticking out. It has been fine but yesterday he was listless and a crust formed around this 'penis' I cleaned it and he seemed to respond but he isnt eating and just lays there. he seems to be clutching his head with his front paws. ill look for a vet tomorrow(Mon) but has anyone ever run across this? We have had veiled before and never had any trouble they lived long lives and were a large part of our family as is Tiny Elvis. I would appreciate any info or reference to this problem. I cant find anything on the internet. thanks desparate mom of Tiny Elvis

    my brother has a snake that had the same problem. it is not good and i believe the vet told them to use sugar water and something else to help reduce the "issue" and they had to slowly and gently tuck it back inside. talk to a vet and other reptile owners about this. i wish i had more to tell you about it.

    How do they drink water?
  • Jeremy Roche - 2012-03-18
    They can. They reach sexual maturity at 5 months. Good luck!
  • Jeremy Roche - 2012-03-28
    They will normally drink water drops off of plants. So it is a must that you spray the plants with water. They will very rarely drink from a bowl.

    The female should be at least 12 months old before she is bred or she may not be physically equipped to withstand the challenges of pregnancy.
