    Now here's my newest boy! Spiny chameleon wild caught from Madagascar. Previous owner, was housing him incorrectly with improper UVB and Heat sources leaving this guy extremely vulnerable. As you can see, in this photos his right, front foot there is swollen to the max! Took this guy into the vet two days after getting him, he had an improper calcium to phosphate ratio leading to Fractures in the fore arm. Taking medications on our way to recovery!

    :) Thanks! I'll Definitely post an update in a few weeks! He's so depressed though, doc told me there's no point in putting a cast on him, so I had to take away all his branches and leafs so he couldn't climb high. Now he tries to perch himself up on the smallest little branch I laid down in the bottom aha I feel so bad for him.
