Haha yea buddy,well they do require more tlc then most lizards for sure. But totally worth it. Once he is well established in his vivarium I'll do a video of him feeding and I'll put a mirror in front of him to see if he will do a color display for territorial dispute.

What about roaches, does he eat those?

He can when bigger,however, I only feed things from a dealer or store,never wild caught, never know what it's been eating or if a pesticide has been sprayed on them.

 

Further news,Jackson is shedding!

I sent LongPig roaches for Christmas. True story.

That's awesome!

I hear chameleons can run pretty quick when you try to grab them , is this true?

I have not found this to be true,mine will readily climb into my hand so far, but also,they aren't a lizard to handle alot either as it can stress them,mine is pretty cool so far about light handling and has accepted food from my hand,however all have different personalities. But old world chameleons tend to be stress prone and harder to keep than most lizards. Very solitary creatures, they can see two separate images with their eyes that move 180 degrees to avoid predators, and locate prey. Alot of people have open living areas for them,usually a potted tree or plant like a ficus or pothos,with a light source hung a good 6-8 " away from any branches they can climb as to not let them accidently get burned.

So with that in mind I would think they generally aren't quick or fast.

They are all about taking it easy and blending in,they are thin profiled on the sides to allow ease of movement through the trees or shrubs they live in and of course their famous tongue is 1.5 times longer then their body,they also have a prehensile tail to help them lower themselves or to avoid a sudden fall. Not to mention their hands are unlike any other lizards 5 or so fingers on each fused in a group of 2 and 3 to aid in strong Kung fu grip,and some believe the crest some have is to help collect rain or mist for drinking.

If you couldn't tell, my favorite reptile. :)
