    You may not get many responses as we have no chameleons native to Australia and as such we are not allowed to keep them. I'm not saying no one has them but I doubt they would put their hands up.
    I used to have some when I lived in South Africa and I do miss them, I just don't feel it's worth the risk to our native wild life.

    Oh gosh I'm so sorry. I didn't know! I'm from the states. Don't worry though these guys are c.b. and live a very spoiled life haha.

    Oh he's beautiful I'm jealous! :D

    It honestly kind of depends on their locale, the male that I have is an ambanja and he is absolutely a handful. He's the biggest ham you've ever seen and he ALWAYS wants to eat and be out and exploring so that's what we let him do! Meanwhile our female ambilobe is really shy and laid back. She just likes being in her cage resting(our old male was the same way too). I'm not too sure about the nosy bes but from what I've seen they seem to be pretty active like the ambanjas.

    Beautiful ! Probably the only exotic I'd ever love to own, apart from a Kerry King Jag (which is still, technically, an exotic).

    The UK are lucky in my opinion as most reptiles wouldn't survive if they escaped so you can keep exotics with out worrying about the impact on native wild life.

    Beautiful! We just rescued a baby veiled from a child that was just going to let her die in the cage or ship her. She was so dehydrated, sick and had an awful case of metabolic bone disease that she would've died in shipping. But now she's doing much better! Hopefully she'll be able to climb again.

    Haha that's how I feel since they're passing so many laws on snakes now. But at least hopefully the Burmese will now be under control. It's sad that some people don't think about how it will effect our wild life, and just throw snakes outside to get rid of them.
