    i would have loved to take them but he had himself rested at an akward angle for photo taking..that was my first time seeing one in person and they are beautiful.. the pictures dont do them justice

    The chameleon is almost definitley a mellers cham. those things get huge.
     
  8. I keep mellers chams at home, they are the most amazing chameleon. We feed ours anoles! He's about 2 1/2 feet with his tail stretched and we can hold him!

    sorry it took so long,:eek:

    I wouldn't' say they're common but they're around, I'll check the herp expo this month here and let you know if they have any and what prices they are asking.
    we had them when I worked at the Central Fla. zoo, and actually hatched them out. The egg is over a third the females length.
