I am only 12,But i think i can handle it i have read every thing about these chams. I think these animals will be a great experience for me. i will be getting it next wednesday. I know everything there is about them screen cage dusty crickets with calcium and so on. Any tips on them? i will tell about it as i get it and by the way i'm goint to try to handle it 5 minutes a day and so that it will get used to handling. When it turns it's stress colors i will be done for the day. So wish me luck.
