      Another chameleon...

      I have found some weird things at yard sales before but I have to say I have never found anything like this before. We drove past a yard sale yesterday..saw a screen cage sitting in the yard. Told hubby to turn around and stop so I could go look at it. When I got closer I noticed the cage was NOT empty. Poor little male cham was in there hiding under the hammock thing. They had aspen shavings on the bottom of the cage and all he had for vines etc is what you see in the cage. He's extremely stressed in the pic of him. We had to get him out of the cage so hubby could load the cage in the back of the truck. Yep,I brought him home. He was baking in the sun in their yard and I couldn't just leave him there.

      Thanks Jim! Even Kevin when he saw him said we have to get him out of here. It was 90 yesterday and they had him sitting in the yard next to a box of old Christmas lights. He's in a temporary cage for now. His cage is so gross. When I got the aspen out of the bottom there was a bunch of dried caked on poop. I have it soaking right now. Will work on getting it clean tomorrow. Will post after pics once I get it all set back up

      Great great stop and save! Good thing it was a calyptratus in there and not a tropical species...those calyps are very tough as far as chams go! Almost as tough as Namaqua chams!

      Yeah if it had been a montane species it would have been cooked.

      The desert or scrub species are as tough as nails compared to their tropical brethren ...no cooked chams!

      Ok sorry for taking so long to update you all. Been a busy week. Anyway...here is my redo of his cage and a few pics of him. Some of the ones of him are a little blurry but..He's still settling in and I didn't want to use flash and scare him.

      Ok as a funny side note,I'm sitting here tonight and all of a sudden I hear water dripping on the floor. Could not figure out where it was coming from. So I got a flashlight started looking for anything leaking...Noticed water was dripping out of the corner of his cage. He somehow pulled in his dripper hose and decided it would be fun to sleep on it. So water was dripping on the floor of his cage instead of in the catch container and leaking out onto my floor LOL. Silly boy.

      Thanks Jim. He seems to be settling in pretty well.
