This was about a year ago...but!Ok here's the senario, I'm very very extatic for I'm recieveing my first lizard. CHAMELEON to be exact... She's very cute probably about ten cm's with her tail. We put her in her new beautiful cage. It's not one of the tall tanks, but a regular aquarium, turned upright with a "custom" made door my dad created... In all everything looked wonderful. So we thought...

Next step put all the pinhead crickets we bought in the tank like the petstore said. Could have easily been over 50 crickets.... And all the those crickets started crawling out.

While my parents going crazy... Squishing...Sreaming that they were down the stairs, and so on. While me I'm just sitting watching my Chameleon catch some of the crickets. With the flick of her tongue. An amazing thing.

Well, after some taping, glueing, and cocking later(Cocking is like glue...Don't be rude)we had a happy Chameleon.

Chamele the Chameleon was a great pet, but one day she got congested...then really dehydrated. Sadly. WE did not notice.. for she showed no pain...nor hunger.

We started noticing something was wrong, when she let out a big plooper full of undigestef crickets!

A few days later

She began not to eat...So we bought some rehydrating and food stimulator ...she then eventually lost her strenghth. She passed away that night. :'(

She was a great pet, sadly I don't have her with me now... but I still always think of her.

Please,always make sure your pet is ok... No the symptoms... and have a vet at hand.

Thanx for your time... It was good to talk about her once again.

Steven
