Currently have:
Sonoran Desert Tortoise hatchling
Adopted Longhair Cat (not sure of breed)
3 Kittens (will be looking for home soon!)
Golden Doodle Dog
Shrimp

Would like to have:
Chameleon

I've been interested in a Chameleon. They seem kind of expensive though if they cost around $200 and live only 2 years?

Male Veileds
I think they are very cool...there's been one for sale at Petsmart for months...He's blue and just beautiful...the Mom and Pop pet store that buys my baby birds, has Bearded Dragons for $60 and they are just something else. I have all the stuff to set one up...but not the knowledge needed for a new species to me...Maybe still gonna buy one...IDK just yet...

This whole thread reminds me of the old yarn:

Bill: "I wish I had enough money to buy a herd of elephants."

Mack: "My gosh, Bill! What on Earth would you do with a herd of elephants? Where would you keep them? How would you feed them? Are you nuts?"

Bill: "I never said I wanted any elephants - just enough money to buy them."

Chameleons are a LOT of work for very little payoff, IMHO. You can hit ALL of their physical needs, and they still just spontaneously expire with no indication on WHY it happened and nowhere near old age. A friend I knew used to breed Panthers. BEAUTIFUL animals, but he got out of it after a few years because the animals were so time consuming and difficult to maintain. He tried to do Veiled, but they are among the hardest of chameleons to get to a thriving condition.

Definitely recommend finding a local solid breeder (they don't handle shipping stress at all), and absorbing as much pre-acquisition knowledge as possible.

As for lifespans, my friend had two of his Panthers last 8 or 9 years.

Chameleon care is very specific. But not any more than tortoise keeping.
I'm on the CHAMELEONFORUM.COM
