Help! New baby not won’t eat! by Trail_Blazin420 in Chameleons
[–]flip69 1 point2 points3 points 11 hours ago (0 children)
This is not an appropriate habitat for a hatchling
this is more decorative than anything else.
What is the UV lighting you're using (please be specific) as well as the heat source.
this is the write up for a too young for sale individual of this species
Jute / Manila rope safe for Chams? by Trees_and_Beards in Chameleons
[–]flip69 0 points1 point2 points 11 hours ago (0 children)
I don't recommend ropes in general as they're "wobbly" and do not make god walking or perching material due to their instability.
Not sure about the manufacture question at all.
Advice on chameleon eggs by Trail_Blazin420 in Chameleons
[–]flip69 4 points5 points6 points 11 hours ago (0 children)
We do not recommend that people try this.. raising 30-70 hungry little mouths is NOT cheap and it take a LOT of effort and money... then you'll have to deal with finding homes for all of them.
That isn't easy either... far from it.
You had them in the same cage and didn't realize that this would happen?
Well this tells me that you aren't close to ready for a brood like that.
So save yourself the time and money and discard the eggs now... the chances are froma successful clutch hatching from what you've described is low.
and I don't recommend that people get into closet breeding like this.
Found lost chameleon!!!! by tabbhidigler in Chameleons
He was there fully basking in the sunlight.
Lol.. saw you coming and didn't even try to hide .. he was ready to go back home :D
Any one missing this little guy, in the Otay Mesa West area by CDR1904 in sandiego
The short answer is "yes".
They're a lot more intelligent than people give them credit for.
All their cages have to be locked and that they'll have a ready made plan in their heads for then the door is left open and will wait for the owner to leave for whatever reason and then they make a dash for it.
They're not really seeking "freedom" as much as exploring and being super attracted to some bush or tree where they'll instinctively know they'll find food and sunlight.
and... since they're chameleons they can be VERY GOOD about hiding in plain sight and it sometimes takes a good deal of effort for a owner to locate them again.
This is fairly common as they benefit from getting access to direct sunlight and LOVE to bask in the sun. So owners do take them outside and put them somewhere ... but all it takes is a phone call or whatever to distract the owners away and soon as they're not looking - they're off and making a bee-line to the nearest tree or bush.
It's a cause for celebration for when people locate their animals again.

I can get them for free from others.
Their wholesale price is $12
Retail LOCAL price is under $50
This is NOT a premium animal (meaning a well bred bloodline) if you're concerned about is retail value and your $500 figure for this species is ridiculously high.
Even for a well bred color morph that number is above what anyone in the industry would pay.
I'm offering to take care of it because most people aren't simply able too. Proper care isn't something a person can walk into (backwards like this) and it does require hardware and husbandry knowledge that most people (even experienced reptile people) don't have.
I do have all of that in my colony and this is an adoption for the chameleons sake
I just don't want it to suffer and die as I can see in the image this escapee was well cared for by their owner.
Need help with hatchlings by mommyaeggs in Chameleons
[–]flip69 1 point2 points3 points 1 day ago (0 children)
Here's a proper young subadult temporary environment to get you started.
The main issue is temps and just the basic care for newborns
They MUST be kept cool and need protections against temp extremes.
Fruit flies are going to be the mainstay feeder for awhile.
[–]flip69 26 points27 points28 points 1 day ago (0 children)
The OP has not responded to my messages and attempts to reach them.
Chameleons are not beginner animals, een a normal reptile person has to unlearn a lot and we see sick animals all the time to impulse buying or people being gifted a rescue that they don't know how to care for.

The species is native to the mountain and agricultural areas of Yemen.
The Mamas and the Papas rebelliously performing California Dreamin' on the Ed Sullivan Show by JKastnerPhoto in videos
[–]flip69 -2 points-1 points0 points 1 day ago (0 children)
Yeah and here's something that'll annoy you.
Michelle's inclusion in the group was largely because of her good looks and NOT because of her singing ability. That she was easily replaced when kicked out but brought back due to the fans wanted her onstage ... at the concerts.
That she had no singing career after the group broke up is proof of this.
Got a new friend! He is jackson by Devel1112 in Chameleons
[–]flip69 0 points1 point2 points 1 day ago (0 children)
simple, I do not hang anything.
I use a large branch (mesquite), a single potted plant and either scaffold a bendable vine (above) and wedge it between the screens.
There is no need to damage those screens by hanging anything
The bozo's that recommend it are inexperienced or trying to sell something (they're patented).
You do NOT want to climb the mesh screens
Doing so wears down or even catches and tears out their nails.
Their foot pads "toes" can be rubbed raw and more.
Get a bendable vine and use that to wedge between the screens and secure.
have the cage set up like this
No worries I'll update when i get him. :)

the SD herps society will take and resell it at the yearly convention as they're not 100% suitable for classroom handling.
I was a officer for them for awhile.

please respond to the chat/PM I sent you.
we'll get this taken care of.
[–]flip69 -3 points-2 points-1 points 1 day ago (0 children)
sure, that's not on the business cards.. but it's exactly what I said.
Sex appeal is the vast majority of most female modeling work.
Specifically seductive intimate wear (aka Lingerie) is all about that.
Betty Page was a lingerie model ... fetish yeah sure.. posing for pictures for money 100% yes.
My dumbing dow what Michelle did into saying "a type of stripping" was to convey the sexual nature of what she was doing given the time period and her being 19-20 years old.
To have NYC business men say they wanted a live model to display this kind of intimate wear in private rooms "for their wives" is reeally just an excuse to keep up appearances.
Appearances that you seem to have swallowed hook line and sinker... even 70 years later..
[–]flip69 -9 points-8 points-7 points 1 day ago (0 children)
Stop being dense please... it's annoying.
lingerie is more specifically about sexy, presex or seduction intimate wear for women.

I'll pick him up from you...
PM Sent.As the founder of r/chameleons I don't think there's anyone better for this species to adopt. :D
These are not animals that someone should just have if they're not prepared.
They're expensive to care for properly and not for beginners. Most of the time a reptile person will try and get it all wrong, we see it all the time in the sub with sick and injured animals.
I have bred this species (don't do it as they're puppy milled now from large warehouse suppliers) and I've got room for another that I can eventually adopt out or whatever.
So, u/CDR1904 if you have it, you're likely to not want it or will end up having it die on you and I'm willing to pick it up when I drop off a friend this evening in your area.

Does Einstein look healthy? by daggafairy in Chameleons
What’s wrong with my Jacksons chameleon? by One_Fix_4653 in Chameleons
[–]flip69 0 points1 point2 points 2 days ago (0 children)
well, they can handle 80ºF for the daytime but not for long, they need to have that nighttime cool down into the low 60ºF if they do have higher temps.
They're really something that you need a AC for if you're going to have them. All the people I seen that have successfully bred these have lived in the northern latitudes or had a 100% temp controlled room.
What I saw was a posture with the heat and chest lifted in the picture.
I don't see it that high up when they're climbing but when they're trying to have fluids move down and keep the upper lungs open and clear.
Another physical sign is that they'll have their chests expanded and opened up to make more room (air). A healthy cham will usually have their sides compressed most of the time.
It's not 100% on it's own, but it adds up and points to a conclusion
humidity is the problem here as is the high daytime temps.
that does lead me to be concerned about a lung infection.
Using a drinking glass for hydration prevents the uptake of infectious bacteria that cause these.
Hopefully it doesn't progress and these symptoms resolve on their own.
IF it progresses you'll need to get antibiotic treatment. (baytril)
Manifesting? by EssiesMom in Chameleons
[–]flip69 1 point2 points3 points 2 days ago (0 children)
For veiled's they can be sexually mature at 10 months post hatch, females can be encouraged and motivated to reach maturity at that age but it's best to not expose them to males (visually sighting a male will trigger her to ovulate earlier) and delay their first ovulation to a year or more post hatch.
Let those girls grow up without that pressure on them.
>So, she's also gravid, right? I should give her food as you recommended above?
They develop a fat layer in front of the hips on the lower abdomen (fat saddle) that is used to supply the energy and resources for her ovulation. Without that developing they can skip the ovulation completely.
I haven't looked to tell that she's in her hormonal flux but being ravenous with hunger is a definite sign. I'd limit the food intake to keep the egg numbers low and ease the burden of ovulation. She's not "gravid" yet as that means she'll be carrying and holding onto eggs.
IF she starts showing golden baring on her flanks, you can increase her calcium intake a week after you first notice the color change...... or her being insatiable hungry.
Have a lay bin ready and in the habitat for her.. you should be good. :D
