RE: chameleon pics!
Good job Manda. Nice photos as always. Beautiful reptile pets.

Do you have a video of Ziggy catching worms with his tongue? A video would be cooler than a photo. Smile
What else is among his favorite food besides mealworms?

RE: chameleon pics!
You can always count on Manda for cool reptile pictures. I think she is attempting to convert us. Tongue It is getting harder and harder to resist getting one of those chameleons in her pictures. How much do they typically cost? As well as the maintenance cost? Do they like fish? As someone who have large aquariums at home, I always have to worry if some other pets might accidentally fall into one of the fish tanks and drown.

What "reptile report" is it? A magazine?

lol i think everyone needs a chameleon Wink the cost depends on the species, my jackson's (the one with the horns) was $75, but my panther, ziggy, was $300. their entire setup costs around $200 give or take. they are expensive animals, but once you have everything, the setup and cham, all you have to pay for is food, and for a single cham a month, that wont be more than $25 a month.

i dont think they would like fish, they may try and shoot their tongue at them through the glass, but it wont hurt them Smile as long as you have no way for one to climb up the tank to fall in, you shouldnt worry, but even though they float, they will die from the low temperature if fallen into a tank and left there for a long period of time.

the reptile report is a website that highlights the best of the best photos and facts from almost every reptile forum on the web.

i do have a video of him eating, but its very short and not very good, hes a fast little bugger! i also have a video of linus too!

ziggy's favorite food is superworms, which was in the big, its a different species than that of a mealworm, but they get huge! he also likes hornworms and silkworms.





also, Thor, you have all the permission in the world to use these photos Smile

The initial investment for any pets would not be too cheap. That is for sure. At least I have just learned from you that it is cheaper to set up for a chameleon than setting up a large aquarium. Smile

I really thought the linus would be the more expensive one because of his more exotic looks. Oh yeah, I meant the horns. Big Grin

So they float. With their heads above the water?
The water temperature shouldn't be a problem. All my fish tanks are tropical. I have heaters in each one of them to keep the water temperature at 76~80F at all time, so it is warmer than my room temperature. I just worry some other pets might drown if they fall in.

Do they ask permissions to post photos from other web sites and forums?

RE: chameleon pics!
lol linus does look more exotic, but they are a more popular species because they need cooler temperatures than other other chameleons, plus they give live birth and breed very quickly. the survival rate for young is another story though. they can float very awkwardly and its not natural to them at all:



and no, the reptile report does not ask permission because they give a direct link to the source of photos and information. but its an honor to have them interested in my photos Wink

RE: chameleon pics!
I LOLed at the second video. You actually feed your linus one worm at a time by hand. Do you always do it every time you feed him or is it just for the video? How many worms are required for each meal?

Was it a wild chameleon in the chameleon swimming video?
It is much smaller looking than your pets. I can't tell which species it is. They can really "float". It was more like walking on the water. Even though it fell into the water a few times, it just stood right up.


Thanks for the permission to use the photos by the way. We still need reptile articles in order to use reptile photos. Smile

RE: chameleon pics!
i usually only feed him crickets, i only feed worms as a treat once in awhile, so they are the only thing thats hand fed Smile he eats about 10 crickets every other day with about 5 worms of different types a week.

as for the chameleon in the video, yes it is wild, and it is an african flap-neck chameleon Smile

RE: chameleon pics!
Congrats Manda! Smile Now your just showing off, lol Wink

Really though, I was all excited the first time I got some pics up there. The Reptile Report is a site started by Robyn Markland of Pro Exotics/Ship Your Reptiles to show off anything cool in the herp world. He is a good guy and has done allot for the herp community.

Here are Manda's two boys on the Report! Smile

The first one I got on there was my female caramel coastal Corriander, I was tickled. Since I got my new camera a few months ago I have made it up there 8 or 9 times, but I was briefly obsessed trying to get my GTP Eos up there, because I got some great pics. But no love there. Sad In contrast my two Bredls have shown up there almost weekly, and while they are great, the photos pale in comparison. But maybe I'm biased, lol.

RE: chameleon pics!
These pictures are beautiful. Years ago when I lived in Florida, we used to go to reptile pet shops in the Fort Myers, and some up around Bartow. I always liked the lizards, but the chameleons were special, because of their abilities in changing color, as well as, that long fast tongue and the way their eyes roll around seeming to watch your every move. The shops were always buzzing with customers and the noise level was high due to all those crickets chirping. I enjoyed the shops that had nice glass enclosers for the chameleons, for the ones that used wire allowed adults and children, to poke their fingers in, as well as, other objects just to tease them. But the thing that really stood out to me about the chameleons besides their cute feet, was the air of intelligence in the art-like poses on perches and branches, and their calm collected manner of looking around and knowing they are gorgeous.
