Smile Veiled Chameleon

I saw a veiled chameleon at the pet store a while back, and fell in love. I am a bird person, but when I saw the chameleon I know that I will have to have one.
Any suggestions or info.? I have never had a lizard or even been around one.
Guess I should do a lot of research first.

Personally, I don't recommend them as a first lizard. Chameleons are very difficult to care for and quite sensitive. Be prepared for really expensive vet bills, if you can even find a vet who will examine them.

I too, wanted a chameleon at one point but after researching decided to wait until I am much more experienced.

Here are some links:

I agree, chameleons are not for beginners. They are extremely sensitive to environmental changes. Do a lot of research before you purchase one.

One other thing, from a purely practical point, is that they have pretty short lifespans, compared to most other pet lizards. Most species of chameleons don't live longer than 3-6 years. If you buy one (at the very high prices most pet stores charge), you many only have it for a couple of years under the best of circumstances....
