I looked up "petech magnetic water drip system" since I was curious but I can't find anything on it. Did you spell it wrong?

No its spelled correct,it's easier to just go to LLLreptile.com and look under their water drip system section .

It was hard to yield results with it via search engine for me to.

They are territorial right? Separate cages if you got a female?

Yes,they actually change color for mating and territorial disputes,most think it's for camouflage however.

Females live shorter life spans in captivity and only get one horn on the nose if any,while males will get 3 as mine has,and live 8-10 years females usually 4-6 years. Laying babies is hard on them,also,you notice I said babies. They don't lay eggs.

Cool. I've always wanted a panther chameleon.

Panthers are a bit different,they are larger,come in many different t colors and much more expensive depending the lines you want.

Haha I don't know crap about reef keeping in the scheme of things and don't pretend to either lol.

Herpetology on the other hand.

My wife would freak if I ever brought reptiles in the house as pets. Someday maybe though. I've thought about keeping one in my office.

My BIL used to keep snakes. Very cool also. I catch all kinds of garden snakes for my boys all summer. Never get to keep them though.

I've really looked at the frog builds on here. It's tempting. I love the songs. Her not so much.

AJ is cool man! I always wanted one as a kid....but always heard they didn't do well in captivity. I'm sure now there is a lot more information on them.

 

I'll have to keep checking in on him.

Ok,so all is well this morning,he was drinking little water droplets off the leaves and bamboo shoots,and colors are brightening up. He snagged a cricket off the corner of the cage,seemed to like them. Maybe fruit flies today.
