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.

    My guess is you are putting your hand behind him and he calls that CHASE. Put one hand in front of him and let him come to you and just pick him up. Try that. If that doesn't work, then put one hand in front of where you believe he is going to go asnd use your other hand to prompt him there and pick him up.

When I was about 5 I had 13 wild frilled chameleons (a species not mentioned on this list) constantly visiting me and becoming remarkably tame. If you can get a hold of one you will have a 1 foot long, scaley friend for a long time!

I have 40 veiled chameleon eggs sitting in some substrate. I was told to humidify the eggs. How would I do that and is this a good idea?

    Yeah just put them in a dark room in a box. Have some soil in the box and make sure it is moist.

My husband and I got a graceful 2 months ago she was doing very well in her enclosure. She had recently fell from the top ledge to the bottom of the tank. We are unsure if she is going to make it. She isn't eating, Opens her eyes occasionally, and not a whole lot of movement. any suggestions on what to do. She does still drink water.

    I don't know of anything you can do.  I'd just give her water and hope that she heals.

    The panther chameleon doesn't recognized 'standing water' as something they can drink.  You can spray the encl;osure a couple of times a day and he will lick the drops off plants or you can get a dripper.  They see moving water dropping and that is how they get their water.  This link will take you to u tube video of a panther chameleon drinking from a dripper.  Handsome fella

My 11 month old male veiled chamelion has a protrusion from its anal area about an inch long that looks like a blood filled sack followed by a short protrusion of skin. Do you know what this might be. It has not withdrawn into it's body and has only been out for a few hours. Thanks for any info you can give me.

    Did you find out what was wrong with your cham? I am having the same problem with mine.
  • Dan Krull - 2012-04-07
    This is called a prolapse. Prolapse means that some internal organ has slipped out of the body through the cloaca. (poop hole)

    With an adult male veiled you could have a hemipenal prolapse. (His sex organ has prolapsed, or everted)

    Or a cloacal/rectal prolapse. (the bottom bit of his digestive tract has come out)

    If it goes back in within a few minutes, don't worry. He probably just everted his hemipene. Not unusual. They can also temporarily prolapse the cloaca when defecating.

    IF IT DOESN'T GO BACK IN: Take him to the vet. This is a potentially fatal condition. If the hemipene will not retract, it will likely have to be removed.

    Hope that helps.

    Dan
