    I will say, Jackson's chameleons in my limited experience are a difficult reptile to keep, just to note. I highly recommend the chahoua if you're willing/able to spend a bit more upfront for the gecko itself- though they are nocturnal, they do tend to be out during the day and have fabulous personalities. I am completely in love with my 4. They require no extra heat and light, though they can benefit from a little uv exposure to bask in, I hear. (I also have cresteds and one leachie. Leachies are a bit lazier, cresteds sleep a lot during the day but are beautiful and fun to handle. They do jump, so keep that in mind.)

They aren't always hiding like some species after they settle in, they are great with handling and such funny little characters. I enjoy them totally! I think your parents would enjoy their quirky ways too... Let us know what you decide!
      As long as he still has them, I'm going to get either a gold dust day gecko, or a giant day gecko. I was browsing craigslist pets as I always do, seeing if there's any free/cheap reptiles I can rehome and I found these poor babies: http://sacramento.craigslist.org/pet/3792247930.html

      They are housed in critter keepers with barely anything in them. Poop all over the gold dust's bamboo pole. Their colors are bright so I guess they can't be doing terrible, but that's no way to house them. I wish I could buy both of them and house them together but I'm afraid the giant will eat the gold dust):

        I am not at all familiar with the husbandry of these species, but like you pointed out they don't look like they are living in the best environments. Just be aware that there are some risks when taking on animals that have not been cared for properly, and that vet bills may add up quickly.
