A couple of things for you to think about. You will have more info on the care and health of your future cham if you buy direct from a smaller scale quality breeder. A big outfit like Reptile Depot may have great supplies, but may buy lots of cheap babies for resale and won't offer you much info on their origin. There are a lot of poor quality inbred little veileds out there. Don't get a baby, opt for an older juvenile. May cost more, but will be easier to raise and feed. Caution about the light...it can produce dangerously high temps, so set the cage and basking area up first and test the actual basking temps you get so you don't end up burning him. Check www.chameleonjournals.com for a list of safe plants (Ficus, Hibiscus, schefflera, pothos all work). Good luck!
