About The Chameleon Academy
Welcome to your multi-media Chameleon Education Resource!
The Chameleon Academy is based on the information presented in the award winning Chameleon Breeder Podcast. By presenting the episodes in a class structure the podcast becomes the lecture, but it is structured within a greater learning experience. To the podcast I have added images, text, and video to create a multi-media learning experience. Through the podcast I am bringing information from the most advanced keepers, breeders, and scientists to the community on a weekly basis.
Herein you will find the collection of the most experienced minds in the chameleon community sharing what we know and pointing the way to figuring out what we don’t know. This is the most up-to-date resource of chameleon husbandry available. The Chameleon Academy is constantly being updated with the latest of chameleon-specific information.
The main program here at the Chameleon Academy is the Chameleon Husbandry Program which is broken up into four academic terms and will cover the different stages of growth in chameleon knowledge. But you do not have to dedicate yourself to an entire program. You may pick and choose individual topics and even simple questions for quick answers. The menu bar here will guide you to where you want to go!
If you are new here then check out The Introduction To Chameleon Basics module to get a feel for what we do here!

The first term of the Chameleon Academy has been launched with Getting Started With Chameleons. This collection of courses assumes no prior knowledge of chameleons and guides you through the important steps towards a long, healthy life for your chameleon. These courses can be viewed independently, of course, but they are designed to flow one after another. If you would like to go through the entire set of courses as intended, then start with Chameleon Basics and follow the navigation at the bottom of each page. Please enjoy the course presentations that make up Term 1: Getting Started With Chameleons.
