    This is Victor. He was acquired from a friend who treated him very poorly, hence the glass enclosure. He died over night. When I woke up, he was on the bottom of his cage dead.

    I am sorry to hear that! A while ago I spent some time on the phone with a great person who was trying his best to help me with one that I had in here. In this conversation with Bob, I learned that once chameleons have had severe dehydration it is really hard for their kidneys to recover from that. They usually will live another six months or so. I had the same problem with the one in here. He died 3 months later, under vet care. The vet confirmed the same thing, severe dehydration led to severe kidney damage that he was unable to recover from.

    Again, I am very sorry to hear of your loss!

    Sorry to hear about that. But at least you did the best that you could for him while he was in your care.

    Sorry to hear about your loss. Chameleons go down hill rather quickly once their on their way. I'm sure it was nothing you did, most likely poor state of heath and then the stress the move was too much for him.

    I'm sorry for your loss. I'll echo everyone here in saying that hopefully you can get some comfort in knowing you did your best and gave him love and attention in the end.

    You did everything you could, and you can be sure that if nothing else, at least you made his last days better for him so he didn't suffer until the end.
