View Full Version : My High Pink Translucent Male Veiled Chameleon


My High Pink Translucent Male Veiled Chameleon

This is my New little buddy..He still does not have a name. I bought him at the Manchester NH expo a few weeks back..
He is a High pink Translucent Veiled Chameleon. He was a bit skinny when I first bought him, But he is now putting on some weight and starting to look really good. He has a great attitude and loves to come out and see me.

He loves his Criskets, wax worms, and his chopped up salad of greens and topped with a few tiny diced grapes.
He is a spoiled little man...........and thats how it should be.

What a pretty pretty boy, I am jealous.

Chameleons, the one reptile I love as much, if not more than corns.

OMG. LOL. He is great Amanda. So are the pics.

He looks kind of mean. Is he nice?

He's so gorgeous! Did he cost a fortune? Too bad they only live two seconds...I didn't know they ate salad! That really surprises me.

haha..Thank you very much!! I love his pink socks!!..

As far as lizards go. Cham's are my #1 Pick...He is a very pretty boy..and I think he kinda knows it ;)

<-------(I can almost look straight up...LOL.)

He is VERY nice..he will let you know when he has had enough though. First he will swell up and try and deter you from doing, whatever it is that you are doing...then he'll open his mouth..and if that doesn't work..he'll make this hissing sound..but I haven't been bit yet..and don't think he will actually go through with his threats.
Thank you for the nice comments..

Thank you NANCI!!

He did cost a pretty penny..But I fully expected to pay for a good animal like this..I didn't pay much for my last Cham and he didn't last very long....
I paid $200 for him..but oddly enough the female with him, who was also a translucent was only $150...weird. Usually females are more..

Nanci. I'm not sure about other species..But I know this one does. They are omnivorous....In the wild..when there is lack of water and bugs they will eat Plant matter....its a good idea to include it in their diet. Eventhough Veileds are pretty hardy chameleons..they still can not stand much neglect and nutrient rich food is a must....I like to give him his options..
I water him via drip system..But Don't like to let it drip when I'm not home..so I mist his plants and give him fresh salad every day..and he LOVES it!!
....I really hope I have him for a long time....(But I will not be surprised if he doesn't last more than 5yrs...sadly.)



How cool!! I didn't know they came in that color.

haha.neither did I 'till I saw him..I knew I had to have him..Besides he was the healthiest Veiled I saw. Thank you.

That is completely unusual! Beautiful animal.

Thank you very, very much!..

Thank you guys for posting your nice comments..I was happy to share him with you all..But wanted to make sure he was settled in and eating right before I posted pics. Like I said..He hates the camera..so I try not to shove it in his face much...as hard as that is, because he is very beautiful..

Thanks again for looking!!

You know, now that I think about it, I think I remember my daughter saying hers would take bites of the plants in her viv. So she had to be super careful about what plants went in there.

There are _really_ cool chams in that DVD that Kathy sells. Can't think of the name of it...Reptilmania!

Your nail polish matches your chameleon!
He and his enclosure are beautiful. He must be loving it.

haha..Yeah. He tried to eat his fake plants at first..even though he wouldn't get any when he'd bite it..he'd still chomp and chew like he has something in his mouth..LOL..it was funny..but he now has his own salad..He has a live plant too..but doesn't touch it as long as he has greens in his dish.
.....I'll ahve to check out that DVD sometime.

...haha..Green is my fave' color!!
Thank you very much..he does love it..or so I think..He is always bright and happy..he only gets mad when he can see the camera..or my cat..hahaha!!

Thanks for looking

Stephen,
Thats really cool that you've bred them before..haha..so when I get a female and have any questions..would it be okay to shoot you a PM?.
.......I more than likely will not be breeding him this year...
But when the time comes..waiting for the eggs to hatch will be well worth it.

Thank you very much!! I love him!!

HAHAHA...I will never forget the look on your face!..He can be quite the grump when he wants to..but when he opens his mouth at me..I stick a butter worm on his lips and he munches away and calms down..he just wants things done his way..or the highway..hahaha..
THANK YOU for looking!! :):)

I'm actually not sure...I'dlove to have him forever....
But I feel it's along the lines of "NOT VERY" long at all...:awcrap:

I had a smaller Cham only live a year before...I hope this one will stay around longer he is treated like a king....BUT he could die at any moment for unknown reasons..and when that day comes..I will be all done with keeping Chams'....

BUT thank you very much for looking!..He's a great boy!

Gee, hope he lives a nice long life for you! I've also heard of their fragility, are most of these guys WC?

You hav eto really look around...some people at expos sell all WC..but there are some breeders out there that will sell nice CB babies and adults.
This guy was/is CB.
I didn't mean to sound so dramatic about the cham..but If you get attached to you animals as I do....Its best to know the good and bad..
Nutrition is the BIGGEST part of keeping your Cham' healthy...mine eats, and eats, and eats....he like salads topped w/fruit and his worms, and crickets.
:shrugs:Hope this helps..if you have any questions I will try my best to answer them..hahah I tend to ramble on about anything and everything ;)
