Anyone have one?
When I was a little kid I was obsessed with these things but forgot about them until I happened to google pictures of them when I was drunk a few nights ago.

How much do they run you? (The actual lizard, a tank, fixings, food)
What do you feed them?
Can I decorate my tank with rainbow pebbles/Tile floor samples to make it look like a baller?

I heard of people having a glass tank that had vines coming out of it that were all around the room. When in the room, tank can be open and Chameleon will chill on the vines around the room, when out of the room, close the tank, chameleon chills in the tank.

I'm also a big Herbie Hancock fan.

Lets talk about Chameleons!

Owning one would probably be cool. But I already have a kitty that loves me.

Despite it being very very mean and often hisses at me should she be annoyed with my petting.

Besides, tarantulas are the freaking coolest pet ever.

Ain't it adorable?

I mean. No =/

Plus my picture if bigger so your post is irrelevant. Other than the part where you said owning a chameleon would be cool.

What's the point of having a pet chameleon and not naming it Karma?

EDIT: /misread OP and thought you named it Herbie

It wasn't supposed to be bigger, it was supposed to be about even. But bro I don't think you want to start an image war, because I'd totally win.

I'd rather keep talking about chameleons and their role in my future life.

Was it cool when it was alive? Or seeing your friend's life crumble upon its death?
Lack of punctuation is making it very hard to understand your post.

Im sorry to hear about your loss. Maybe one day your friend and his buddy will climb vines and shit in the rainforest in the sky some day soon. You should buy him another.

You're going to have a discussion about cool pets and not bring up these cute bastards?

you're never as free as when you are lost

I had a veiled chameleon when I was a kid. It was easy to take care of and cool as ****. Their hands are weird and cool, pretty much everything about them is cool, honestly. I just fed mine crickets, sat in a medium cage and was fine with a regular heat lamp and a uv light. Misted his cage twice a day. Pretty low maintenance imo. Great pets.

Edit to above: they change color with mood or emotion, not to blend in. Mine was a light green most of the time, but when he was distressed ( for example falling off his ledges) he would instantly turn jet black. When he was happy (I think) he would go this very vibrant bright green. Beautiful animals.

Never had one, but want it soooooo bad. They're hard to come by and when you find one they're really expensive, but I guess that's not for every country in the world

most people go on holidays, and it's something to consider before you buy one plus all the stuff. Lots of animals get neglected or dumped or 'looked after' by friends who can't do it properly.

I've always wanted one. Even though they do noothing but chill, I've always wanted one.

Rapunzel in Tangled had a pet chameleon, I'm sure there are others in movies, too - Rango, that's another

You had a ladybug that played harmonica?

Or a landline telephone? I still have landline telephones, but they're not plugged in. I'll probably donate them to a museum in a couple of years.

Veiled chameleons run for around 100, their life span is from around 5-7 years, they're also insectivores. I happen to currently own an iguana and they're pretty cool. Iguanas are a bit harder to take care off, so yeah chameleons are pretty chill animals and I would definitely buy one.

Here's a great site with a bunch of good breeders that will be more likely to insure that you get a healthy animal, though it may cost a little more since you have to have it shipped.

http://www.faunaclassifieds.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=51

Look for a good care sheet on them as they aren't exactly beginner animals. I bought a Jacksons Cham. as a kid and a couple weeks after bringing it home from the store it had 13 babies.. they were pretty hard to care for and eventually all died because, well, I was a dumb ass kid. I ended up giving the chameleon back to the store. They are awesome pets though and if you're responsible and follow their guidelines well you won't have trouble taking care of them. Just have to make sure you can keep them at the right temps and they do best in a screen cage.

Here is a decent guide on Panther Chameleons which are probably my favorite, they have the best colors. Adult veileds are pretty cool too.

http://www.reptilechannel.com/care-sheets/panther-chameleon.aspx

If you're really interested in them you should look and see if there are any Reptile Expos in your area I'm sure if you just google your state + reptile show you'll find some results. Those are always cool to go to even if you don't get anything. There's a guy at the Detroit reptile show who usually has a couple huge chameleons crawling around freely at his booth.

Edit: Just wanted to add that if you do get one, make sure you get a Captive Bred one and not a wild caught. Wild caughts will come with parasites and will be much harder to care for. Also the April 2013 issue of Reptile Magazine has a huge article about chameleons/care in it.

I'd like to own a chameleon, I'd probably go for a panther chameleon.

I have a rosy tarantula, pastel ball python, pueblan milk snake, an american toad and a huge ass cat.

I plan on buying another snake this spring, probably a western Hognose

Snakes are so chill to take care of, but a chameleon would be pretty cool too.

Thanks so much for your post, man. This is really what I was looking for.
Very helpful.

Can't wait to own one of these bad boys.
