Chris provides something many breeders do not, a helping hand. It is obvious he wants to share his love of reptiles with others and he shows this by helping you every step of the way
How I got started on this path
I have always been fascinated with reptiles and have kept many different breeds since childhood.
I also enjoy nature, animals, hiking, fishing, and working with bees.
In 2013 I started to breed veiled and Jackson Chameleons and Crested Geckos. I enjoyed the process and decided to expand my operations to include my favorite chameleon, the Ambilobe Panther Chameleon.
2013 – Started Breeding Jackson Chameleons and Geckos
2018 – Bred my first pair of Ambilobe Panther Chameleon
2022 – Started a business as a Chameleon breeder
My Process & Results
Chameleons are a type of lizard that are known for their ability to change the color of their skin. They are native to Africa, Madagascar, and southern Asia. There are many different species of chameleon, ranging in size from less than an inch to over two feet in length. Chameleons are unique creatures that have the ability to change the color of their skin. They are also known for their long tongues and protruding eyes. Chameleons are found in warm climates and are mostly arboreal, meaning they live in trees.
Chameleons are typically found in pairs during the breeding season. The male will court the female by changing the color of his skin and performing a dance. If the female is receptive, she will also change her color and the two will mate. After mating, the female will lay a clutch of eggs which she will incubate until they hatch. The young chameleons will then be on their own, to fend for themselves.
Breeding pairs of chameleons can be a rewarding experience, as you get to watch the fascinating courtship ritual and see new life emerge. If you are thinking of breeding chameleons, be sure to do your research first to make sure you are providing the best possible care for your animals.
The Breeding Pairs
An important step in producing excellent Ambilobe Panther is to pick your mating pairs carefully. If you are looking to mate a pair of chameleons, it is important to consider a few things. First, you want to make sure that the two chameleons are compatible. This means that they should be of the same species and be of similar size.
Second, you want to make sure that the two chameleons are healthy. This means that they should be free of any diseases or parasites.
Third, you want to make sure that the two chameleons have a good diet. This means that they should be eating a variety of foods, including live insects.
Finally, you want to make sure that the two chameleons have a good habitat. This means that their cage should be large enough for them to move around freely and that it should have plenty of hiding places.
By carefully selecting my breeding pairs I am able to produce amazingly beautiful chameleons.
Chameleons are mostly carnivorous, meaning they eat mostly insects. Their diet should be high in protein and low in fat. A healthy diet for a chameleon includes crickets, mealworms, waxworms, superworms, roaches, and Silkworms. Fruits and vegetables such as apples, bananas, grapes, melons, and leafy greens should also be offered. Chameleons should be fed live food as much as possible.
It is important to dust the insects with a calcium supplement powder before feeding them to your chameleon. This is especially important for female chameleons who are pregnant or laying eggs.
By focusing on important aspects like diet, the Chameleons I offer are very healthy.
When handling your chameleon, it is important to support its body. Cup your hands around their body, being careful not to squeeze too tightly. Slow movements and not a lot of excitement is important as chameleons prefer calm environments.
If your chameleon is showing signs of stress, such as panting or gaping, it is time to put them back in its enclosure. Chameleons are best left to their own devices and should only be handled when absolutely necessary.
I handle my chameleons when they are young so they are exceptionally friendly.
Breeding for colors and temperament
There are a few things to consider when breading chameleons. The first is the type of chameleon you want to end up with. There are many different species of chameleons, and each has its own unique colors and patterns. You will need to decide which species you want to work with before you start breeding.
The next thing to consider is the color or colors you want your chameleon to have. Chameleons come in a wide variety of colors, so you will need to decide what colors you want to work with. You may want to choose colors that are rare or that you think will look good together.
The last thing to consider is the temperament of the chameleon. Some chameleons are more aggressive than others, and you will need to decide if you want an aggressive or a docile chameleon. This will help you choose the right parents to breed together.
Breeding chameleons is a process that takes time and patience. You will need to do your research and make sure you are making the best choices for your chameleon. But the end result will be a beautiful, colorful, and well-tempered chameleon that you will be proud to call your own.
By selectively breeding for vibrant color and good temperament, my Chameleons are exceptionally colorful and receptive.
