Their Care and Breeding
Author: Linda J. Davison
Publisher: Surrey, B.C. : Hancock House
The one and only chameleon is world renowned for its ability to change its skin color rapidly (throughout movement of pigment cells) and for the outrageous length of its tongue (more than one and a half times its body length!). Relatives of agamids and iguanas, chameleons are insect-eating, tree climbing reptiles that have highly specialized needs. Written by a team of experienced herp experts, Chameleons intends to instruct keepers on how to best care for their chameleons and covers the four most commonly kept species: Jackson’s chameleon with its prized triceratops horns on its head, panther chameleon with its spectacular coloration, veiled chameleon with its unusual casque on its head, and the rather large Parson’s chameleon. The book subsequently is divided into four parts, each including an introduction and natural history, captive care, and reproduction of the species. Part I, Jackson’s Chameleon was written by Sean McKeown; Part II, Panther Chameleon by Gary Ferguson, James B. Murphy, Achille Raselimanana, and Jean-Baptiste Ramanamanjato; Part III, Veiled Chameleon and Part IV, Parson’s Chameleon by Kenneth Kalisch. References and index included.

Given their unique body plans, independently mobile eyes and unthinkably long tongues, it should be no surprise that chameleons are some of the most popular lizards among reptile enthusiasts. Throw in their ability to change colors in spectacular fashion, and these lizards rise to nearly mythological levels. But this unusual biology means that these lizards require rather specific husbandry, and they are generally not suitable for beginners. Nevertheless, those with a bit of lizard keeping experience are likely to find that panther chameleons are well worth the additional effort they require. While panther chameleon husbandry can be challenging, success is likely if you are sufficiently dedicated and educate yourself about the animals. After learning about the biology, natural history and native habitats of panther chameleons, you will be better prepared to provide your pet with a suitable home, in which he can live a long, healthy life. The author, Ben Team, is an environmental educator and author with over 16 years of professional reptile-keeping experience. Ben currently maintains www.FootstepsInTheForest.com, where he shares information, narration and observations of the natural world. When not writing about plants, animals and habitats, Ben enjoys spending time with his beautiful wife.
