    Slight chahoua tail "zig-zag"

    More likely dehydration. Just make sure they have a fresh bow of water in their enclosures at all times, in addition to misting.

    PI and GT Chahouas

    Also- yes the two locales can be interbred and I’m sure it has happened through the years. These aren’t two genetically separate species— they are just different locales that are found on different islands within New Caledonia. Mixing the two locales won’t produce a “hybrid”, because it is the...

    PI and GT Chahouas

    Hi there! I keep both GT & PI, and aside from weight/size, there are no other distinguishing physical differences in the locales. My GT tend to max out their weights around 55-60g tops, while my PI tend to be almost double that! This isn’t true in EVERY case, as I do have several PI that are...

    Mainland Chahoua specific husbandry queries?

    Hello! I work with both mainland’s & pine island, and except for size there really isn’t anything different between the locales. I have GT that are just as flashy in coloration & pattern as the PI. Babies and juveniles will readily eat any live dusted insects offered, but my adults tend to...

    The calcium sacs are on top of the throat/roof of the mouth though. This looks like it’s on the actual neck

    Diet comparisons

    I was trying to find Mixhael’s original post of homemade vs premade diets but I couldn’t find it. Around the end of March this year, I started adding homemade diet into the food rotation using the Chahoua Chamber diet posted on their Facebook page (thank you, Michael!). The first two feeding...

    Mixing Pre-Made Diets: Yes or No?

    I’d like to know, of the people who make the pre-made diets, how many of them actually have nutritional degrees in specific terms of NC reptiles...or are they just guesstimating from their years of keeping these animals. What’s the research say, on wild animals, what percentage of their diet is...

    Leachie Linguine or Chewie Fettucini?

    Hey so I started adding my chewie fettucini to pange papaya flavor and that got really good feeding response with my crew also. One thing I’m noticing consistently is that the PI I’ve started bringing in, respond VERY differently to the mixed diets. The ones I got from Troy won’t eat any of the...

    Which calcium supplement(s) do you use?
