Chameleon owners in New England: This guy needs your help!
This cham is in absolutely terrible shape and looks like he’s on death’s door. He’s not being housed properly either (he’s currently in a 30 gal. tank) He NEEDS to go to someone with Cham experience and who can get him to a reptile vet or to a reptile rescue!
Please, please please signal boost. I don’t know if this guy can be saved but we should at least try.
The University of Pennsylvania vet school borrowed some geckos from the blog linked above for a bit of study and xrays. I found these xrays just as fascinating as the owner of these geckos did and asked if I could share them here.
I set the captions to say what kind of lizard they are (and the source blog has a page of information for each individual lizard!), but for the sake of being thorough:
The first pair of images are of a gravid chahoua.
On the gravid chahoua, Belite, you can see how she is pulling calcium from her bones due to how dark the middle of them are with only a thin bright white wall.
The second pair is a male chahoua.
Third is a female gargoyle, fourth is a female leachie and last is a male gargoyle with a regenerated tail.
