You said..."Ive had an oustalets for six months now"...so you have determined all of this from owning one oustalets chameleon?

I have an oustalets female right now and although she doesn't like the mist being sprayed on her she drinks almost every day....which is my experience with other oustalets that I've had in the past too.

ADCHAM says..."Initial reports (e.g., Davison, 1997) that oustaleti are "oblivious to dry atmosphere" (p.90) seem to have given many novices the impression that F. oustaleti is a "desert chameleon" with low hydration requirements. Nothing could be further from the truth. Even during the dry season, humidity is high (over 70%) in the coastal lowlands preferred by this species."

I have never had one regurgitate.

You said..."Oustalets are the only species of cham none to eat fruit"...not true...veiled chameleons eat fruit...and greens and veggies.

You said..."Also it is reported that adult male oustalets are not territorial and can be housed together"...I've never housed two males together so I can't say, but I would like to know where you get this from since most male chameleons won't tolerate another in their territory.
