Responsible Captive Breeding of WC Chameleons

Responsible Captive Breeding of WC Chameleons

Chameleons are some of the most unique and fascinating creatures in the animal kingdom, and many people are drawn to the idea of owning a chameleon as a pet. However, despite their popularity, many chameleons are illegally exported from their native home of Madagascar due to the high demand for the animals, causing immense challenges in conserving the species, and responsible captive breeding is needed to protect their population and habitats.

Madagascar is home to fifty percent or more of the world’s chameleons, and illegal exportation, unsustainable hunting practices, and deforestation threaten their populations.

Responsibly breeding chameleons in captivity can effectively reduce the pressure on wild populations and provide an ethical and sustainable option for those seeking to own a chameleon as a pet. A breeding program will require careful attention to the genetics and health of the animals, as well as an understanding of the species’ natural behaviours and social systems. However, when done correctly, captive breeding can ensure that chameleons have a healthy, comfortable home and help to preserve the species.

Another benefit of responsible captive breeding wild caught chameleons is that it can help to educate the public about the importance of conservation and the detrimental effects of illegal wildlife trafficking. Through awareness and education, the public can be made aware of the harms caused by the illicit trade and be encouraged to find other, more sustainable options for owning a pet chameleon.

Responsible breeding of imported chameleons from Madagascar is essential in preserving the species and its habitats. In addition, breeding these animals in captivity can help to reduce the pressure on wild populations and provide an ethical and sustainable option for those looking to own a pet chameleon.

Dear Friends,
As I mentioned over the weekend, we are ready for our next shipment. However, I have decided to move the date to April.
The reason: The shipment has to do a stop before coming to Canada; the place where it transfers has an embargo right now due to cold weather. So they are moving our date to mid-February. As you know, this has been a colder than usual winter for us; the temperatures for mid-February in Canada will be way below zero. So I’m not willing to take any risk. I know we are all excited and anxious, but we have to be mindful of what’s best and play it safe.
It will happen in April at the latest rain or shine, guaranteed. But, of course, as soon as the weather shows some mercy and we have temperatures above zero, we’ll move ahead, so we could be getting it in March if the temperatures are proper.
Even if we got them next week as planned, I wouldn’t be able to ship to most of you due to the low temps in your provinces.
Thank you for your support and understanding. I’m sure most of you will agree with me on my decision, and as always, it will be worth it.
If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me on FB chat, email or over the phone.
