This is a long over due post, I just haven’t gotten around to writing it. On Sunday January 17th my boyfriend and I just got home from the Reptile Expo in Toronto when my Mum called me to tell me about my chameleon Allen. She knows nothing about reptiles so she said he’s sick or dying or is dead, my boyfriend and I came to my house to find Allen hanging by a claw on the screen.
I knew something was up because he wasn’t eating for the last week but at the same time I thought he was just being his grumpy self, as he has not eaten before.
Allen was old for a chameleon so he lived a long life and it’s better that he’s not suffering anymore. He was a great first chameleon, he dealt with me learning how to take care of him and a few mishaps but always went green when I walked into the room. I’ve learnt a lot about chameleons from him and hopefully will get a new one in the near future.
You will be missed Allen.
Thanks for reading,
