Chameleon vivarium (wire mesh) HELP

Hi people

I really need help. I am planning on getting a chameleon in a few weeks, I have made my own vivarium for it and i have covered the front of it in wire mesh.

I couldnt find any of the really fine wire mesh so i was thinking about using metal wire mesh which can be used for bird aviarys from b and q. The holes are about 0.9cm by 0.9cms. I was wondering would this be ok for the chameleon?

I wanted to make sure it would be alright before i actually did it.

Its really bugging me, I thought as long as the chameleon wont get stuck in it it would be fine but i want to make sure.

Hope someone can help

I would think that would fine for the Cham itself but remember the crickets or other live food may be able to escape!

I have made a cage years back with 1/4 caging works ok. I used plastic critter cage to feed him to keep the crickets in somewhat. I perfer mesh just because i feed my chameleon flies.

Where do you live? because you should be able to get some window screen at your hardware store, I got alot of screen at home depot where i live for like 15$ which built a 4x3x2 cage with screen on the top sides and front. and i still have left over! lol so id suggest going to a hardware store and check there
