Well, I made an impulse buy at a reptile show today. I know, I know, pets should never be "impulse" buys.

Anyway, I was wondering if I could get some opinions on these guys from some OG'res that might have already, or currently own some. I got two, male and female and they're very young. I've been told to split 'em up real soon since they're territorial and all.

Awesome looking buggers, never kept any myself but i do know a bit from researching them as we hope to one day possibly care for some. I know they have kind of a difficult reputation as captives due to some odd and seemingly conflicting needs like high humidity, but plenty of ventilation. Basically this necessitates having a drip system that continually drips down a large plant like a ficus tree, with screen sides to get the air flow needed. Temps i believe are a bit lower than some other herps but you definitely still want some sort of a hotspot. I also have read that they love lots of room to roam and some people have kept them with shelves higer up in the room and viney plants making sort of a bridge over a doorway for example to another large plant. I recommend checking kingsnake.com for the chameleon section for proper care tips and info though. What i posted was just sort of off the top of my head.
