On 11-12.10.2018 we had the honor and pleasure of hosting the world’s known chameleon expert - Petr Necas. As the matter of fact Petr was the person who introduce veiled chameleon (Chamaeleo calyptratus) in to herpetoculture. We bought our first veiled chams from him 25 years ago! Petr Necas is the author of dozens of scientific articles and several herpetological books of chamaleonology. One of them, “Chameleons, the nature’s hidden jewels”, - is considered a basal work in this field. Another book is the only book on leaf chamaeleons ever published “Stump-tailed chamaeleons: Miniature Dragons of the Rainforest, the Genera Brookesia and Rhampholeon” He is also an author of descriptions of several new chameleon taxa. Petr is active international expert and advisor helping chameleon communities to grow, spread and correct information and promote best practice in chameleons’ husbandry. He is currently working on few books and still gives massive support to promoting of responsible chameleons’ care and breeding.
We have a fruitful talk with Petr here in BION Terrarium Center concerning chameleons’ keeping and breeding as a part of our advanced staff training. We hope to develop our cooperation in a different ways.
