||One year old|
||Charleston, West Virginia, USA|
received Rose Mary as a birthday gift just a few months ago. She is a very
unique animal. She changes color due to her mood, health, and surroundings
but most of the time she is a beautiful, bright green color. She has a very
long, sticky tongue that she springs out of her mouth quickly when an
unsuspecting insect comes strolling by. She loves, loves, loves crickets!!!
Currently, she is pregnant! Jackson's Chameleons are not like most lizards,
they give birth to live young. She was pregnant when I got her but I did not
know. When her belly started looking like she had swallowed marbles and she
started exhibiting certain behaviors, I discovered this was the case. I am
certain the babies will be born soon because she has gone off her food and
that is a sure sign. Babies or not, Rose Mary is one of the most interesting
animals I have ever had the privilege of owning. We look forward to what our
time together will bring!
