stress?

What would cause my chameleon stress in his cage? Nothings changed for the past 4 months n the past 3 or 4 days he stresses when in his cage. N as soon as I take him out he's fine or if he's asleep he's back to brite colors but when he's awake n in his cage he's a darker brown w black spots occasionally . Humidity levels are good temp levels are good on both sides of cage it's got me puzzled n I can't figure it out.?

He may need more cover. Can you post more(better) pics of his home? Did you ever put more climby things in for him?

Ya, he needs quite a few more plants in there for coverage.

Here's a pic with the plants in it now.mother thing is he rarely hides he's always just sitting out in the open n watches everything especially the tv
Almost every time I go to play a game he goes to the closets place in the cage towards the tv n just lays there n watches till I quit then he goes back ti doing wat ever he does

That was a good move adding the screen bit. I would add a little more sticks though. It does look better. I like to keep most of the cage packed, with maybe a little clearing. Think layers, like the rainforest.

Ok thx even after I've did this he's still all brown will changing their environment scenary stress them out n cause him to do this? Cuz all he does is stay close to the basking light n look around or walkover to the ugh light branch for a couple then rite back to the basking lite cuz wat all started it was I ran out of bedding so I went outside n dug up some grass turf for a couple days till I was able to get new n since then is when he's been staying brown
