This is George, my veiled chameleon. Obviously taken before his death. The caging you see is a homemade job, using 1/4" mesh. I wonder if there's some coating, like galvanizing (which is zinc, I believe), on the mesh. Both he and Roxanne died in this cage, and within a relatively short time of each other. Neither was really old even by chameleon standards. It's possible they absorbed something through their skins from the mesh.

If anyone looking at this photo sees a clue to what ailed him, please, please, email me. My addy's on the Current Pets page.

He was a pretty swayve dude. Sorry, Amy.
