About Me

Hi, I’m Dave and from a young age, I have been interested in keeping exotic animals as pets. I have always been fascinated with chameleons in particular as I find them to be such strange and colorful creatures.

I have kept chameleons, particularly veiled chameleons, for over ten years and have learned a lot during that time. I love continuing to learn about them and sharing that information with people.

I am also passionate about helping beginners learn about caring for chameleons as pets and how to keep them healthy and happy.

This site is dedicated to Isambard. May you roam free in the jungles of the sky.
