I just got a juvenile Mellers Chameleon, i was told about 5 months old and CB in florida (4in body length) on sunday afternoon/evening. I've had it for 2 days now in a small tank accompained with a pothis plant so that I could monitor its transition to my home. Everything is looking good so far... Hes hydrated, drinking whenever I mist, 4 times a day at least, he doesnt seem stressed by my appereance; staying a nice light green color or a darker green, sometimes showing dark green spots but nothing that is showing aggression or over stress, and just appears to be pretty content. Throughout the day it will wonder the tank (only about 10 gallons) i know this is small but remember I just want to monitor it for a couple days, and it looks like it will attempt to get out for a little but nothing over dramatic and for no extended period of time. Now for my problem... I've offered it crickets yesterday and today but to no success in feeding. It notices the crickets, and will glance at them but shows no interest in them what so ever. Does this seem normal for a baby mellers that is in a new place? Tomorrow I'm going to put some small meal worms in, and see if it will get better results. But if this doesnt work this will be day 3 with me that it hasnt eaten. After this should I be worried or shoudl I just give it some time. I also plan on moving the mellers to its next stage terrarium (a 65gal. reptarium) with 2 pothis plants and grape vines. This is not my first time with chameleons & reptiles in general, but this is my first time with a Mellers Chameleon. Any suggestions or help at all will be greatly appreciated. And yes I have read Melleridiscovery.com.
Once again Thanks a lot!
