New O'Shaughnessy's Chameleons

Sunday, August 2, 2015
I apologize again for my prolonged absences, I have a lot of things going on right now. My oldest dog, Mina, a 7 year old Shetland sheepdog, was diagnosed with lymphoma 3 weeks ago so I'm doing a lot of extra juggling now trying to get her to her chemo appointments while not missing any work time. So far she's doing very well on the chemotherapy but the vet only gives us a guess of  9-12 months left, so I am trying to do things with my two dogs on the weekends trying to get things ticked off her bucket list, as it were. 

But months ago I received this pair from a friend in Colorado, Chad New of Tiki Tiki Reptiles, and I have been in love ever since. The Calumma oshaughnessyi pair had been in the country about a month before Chad and I started talking and I've had them now for a couple months. They are doing really well outside in the Florida weather, with plenty of shade and lots of water. The little female, Imogen, has shed a couple times since I've had her and so has Lachlan, who had a few broken toes and scrapes from being a wild-caught import. But they have settled in beautifully, and are eating like little champions. 

This is my first attempt with the Calumma genus, and so far it's been exciting. They are gorgeous, if I do say so myself, and are such a lovely size. That blue throat on him and the blue freckles on her are to die for.
