with tons of silk, plastic, vine and plants to reduce the loss of heat and add seclusion and lots of grapevine bamboo branches and etc... The panther is an eight month old ambanja/sambava male I purchased a month ago from LLL Reptile he is alaso supplemented calcium twice a week by dusting, and he has been eating and drinking well until his first shed here hes dehydrated and lack of appetite scary but today I freaked when i saw loose stool misting has not changed at all and the loose stool is it the dreaded mbd or just stress from his shed?
Hi, i'm not trying to be a jerk. I apologize in advance if i offend you somehow. But, perhaps, in your next response you can put some periods here and there to get your points across better.
But, on to your chameleon problems, I have highlighted the things that are problematic.
You have 150 watt heat lamps that on for 24 hours (assuming you are turning the night lamp on during the evening).
These lights alone is a warrant that deplete your chameleon's hydration.
i suggest using 1 heat lamp 75 watt or lower (unless if you live in area that is extremely cold).
no light whatsoever during the night unless the temp drops below 60 F.
The waterfall need to go. This is not good for your chameleon.
You should achieve humidity by drippers and misting the enclosure at least twice a day.
What do you mean by loose stool?
