Basic Chameleon Buying Guide

Care Sheets - Picking a Healthy Chameleon

When purchasing a new chameleon, go through this checklist to make your purchase and assess your new captive’s health.
1. Check your chameleon for full, alert eyes that are free from matter and injury.
2. Place your hand under the chameleon and lift gently. Allow the chameleon to walk onto your hand to check its grip. Never yank or pull the animal from a branch, even a small tug can result in damage to the joints. If your chameleon’s digits or joints are swollen, it could be an infection or an injury. Seek qualified veterinary treatment right away.
3. If able, try to see if the chameleon will eat or drink. No visible drool or mouth injury should be present when looking inside the mouth.
4. Listen for popping or wheezing when the chameleon breathes. This may be an indication of an upper respiratory disease.
5. Always check the skin for bruising, cuts, ticks or mites.
6. Obtain a fecal check for parasites as soon as you acquire your chameleon. Even the Hawaiian species can contract parasites. All insectivores in stressful conditions have the potential for a spike in parasite production

 

Are you ready for your chameleon?
When choosing your group keep in mind that male + female = babies and babies could still come from retained sperm if all you have are WC females. Obviously this will tack on some extra responsibility that you will need to consider. Of course there is a chance that they won’t breed, but I would make the assumption that they will and plan for it. If breeding is the intention then a 1.2 or 1.3 group would be a good start. I personally feel that having two or more females instead of one takes some of the breeding pressure off the one female. Males from my observations are always ready to breed so to have just one female puts a lot of pressure on her – so two or more is better. I also find that females tolerate advances from males pretty well.
