    She's beautiful. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] No need to move your post but I thought you'd like to know that forum's here just in case. Lots of lizardy folks on the forums (as you can tell). I love the curl to her tail in one of the photos.

    She looks healthy and drinking is a good sign. They generally refuse food and drink when they are unhappy.

    Just make sure she gets plenty of UVB exposure. Mine ate out of my hand after 2-3 months. It was a female 'Sunburst' Veiled.

    That's a different species than what I had envisioned. Kinda reminds me of a Gecko. Has it tried selling you insurance?

    Superimposedhope~Yes I also thought it was a good sign that she drank just 3 minutes after I put her in her new home.Also I just put 5 small crickets in there that were dusted with the calcium powder and she ate 3 of them.She took a 4th into her mouth but then spat it out,lol.Maybe that one tasted bad,lol,so that's also a good sign that she ate already [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] Thanks PAK [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] HAHA Jim you're funny [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img] *Niki* [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/cool.gif[/img]

    Hey Trapper -

    Congratulations!!

    Like Schloaty said, we have a big beautiful 4 year old male Ambanja Panther Chameleon, (furcifer pardalis).

    Here is some advice that I hope is helpful:

    1). OK, GET ONE OF THESE BOOKS:

    Chameleons by Linda J. Davison and/or The New Chameleon Handbook by Francois Le Barre.

    2). Absorb these websites:

    Chameleon Information

    Chameleon Journals

    3). For long term health you will need to do something about the tank...... Think of your new chameleon like a bird. You wouldn't put a bird in a tank would you? There are a few options. You could bust out 3 of the glass sides of a different tank and replace with mesh (we did this when ours was a baby), purchase one of those reptile cages with the mesh or fabric around them, or build a new enclosure. We have 2 enclosures for our adult chameleon we built. One is like a large birdcage. I got the plans from 'Ron Hazleton's Housecalls' website for an iguana cage and modified it so a tray to catch debris and water would fit underneath. The sides are covered with 1/4 inch plastic mesh on the inside (easy to climb on & won't hurt their feet) and black windowscreen on the outside (to prevent the feeder bugs from escaping). The whole front opens like a door. The second enclosure is for outside in the summer so he can some natural sunshine. It's not as elegant - it's a "Tube Cage". Vinyl coated mesh attached to 12 inch diameter plant drip trays. The Davison books shows the tube cages.

    You should have live plants in there for your chameleon. Those websites should have lists of the non-toxic ones. Benjamin ficus is a great one, and that's where our chameleon, "Blue", spends most of his time. We have a big mist bottle and mist the cage with warm water several times a day. Also, they usually will not drink from a bowl. We use a large plastic cup with a pinprick sized hole in the bottom as a dripper. We sit it on top of the cage and fill with water once or twice a day. Our chameleon drinks as the water drips down onto the ficus leaves.

    At some point, you may want to grow your own crickets. There are plenty of websites that tell how and also a book your library could get called "Eat This Bug" which tells how to raise feeder insects. If you do raise your own, "gut load" them by feeding the crickets things like broccoli, carrots and wheat bran, which improves the nutrition for your lizard. They'll grow faster in a warm place. Ours are on top of two florescent light units that light a CP terrarium.

    We vary the foods. Silkworms are a VERY nutritious food item for them. A little pricey, and it takes a little care. We order ours from Silkwormfarm.com. Also, some advocate against wild caught insects but we catch and feed ours grasshoppers, katydids, junebugs, cicadas, large flies, dragonflies, and moths during the summer. You can buy mealworms, but they aren't the greatest - mostly fat and it's hard for the young chameleons to digest the chitin.

    I hope this helps. If you ever have any more questions, feel free to PM me.
