    Lawnmower and Cham

    I had my chameleon out today while the kids were riding their four wheelers around the neighborhood and the engine noise very clearly bothered him. It's interesting you bring this up because I was thinking the same thing today. I strongly believe that motor sounds and their subsequent sub...

    be honest

    I live in Alaska. Standard metrics are challenge to hit up here, but not impossible. I make it work and I have a healthy, happy chameleon. Get or make a hybrid cage with ventilated top and side/front and glass/acrylic/polycarb panels all the way around to make controlling humidity and temps easier.

    cohabbing jacksons chameleons

    Many years ago, about 20, I was young and ignorant and loved chameleons. I loved them so much that I just absolutely had to have a female Jackson’s after having a male for a while. However I didn’t have the space, resources or working motivation to get another enclosure, so I decided to just...

    More questions:)

    Just get branches from outside and tie them together with zip ties.

    More questions:)

    Gingero, I really appreciate your videos. They really are perfect for those new to the hobby. Your hard work does not go unnoticed. OP, Gingero is absolutely right. It will take time for him to settle in and feel comfy. You definitely need to add more branches going in every direction. Try to...

    What kind of screen should I use for a homemade enclosure?

    Go hybrid and use the 1/4” hardware cloth on the sides and the 1/2” on the top.

    Chameleon Cage

    Your girl won't do well for long unless you get a linear bulb and fixture. You can buy both on Amazon. The landed cost is like $75. Its one of the most crucial parts of husbandry as without it your girl could develop irreversible MBD. For veileds' you need a 10.0 reptisun or 12% Arcadia linear...

    Chameleon Selection

    Are you referring to Neptune. I always had the idea that he was super mellow and easy going if he's the one I'm thinking of from your videos. Apologies if I'm way off base!

    Chameleon Cage

    Do you have a linear UVB bulb on top or just the dome lights? Do you have a lay bin for her yet? If not, you're really gonna want to get the correct light and a lay bin ready for her.

    Going overboard.

    Since you are putting so much time and effort into this beautiful enclosure, I strongly recommend that you check out Tamura Designs on Facebook. Take note of how he creates the branch highways and byways. Try to follow his example. I've seen SO MANY people put heart and soul into constructing...

    Going overboard.

    I say a foot because that's really how much you need in order to establish proper layering of the bioactive substrate from top to bottom. But it's not to say that you can't do it with the depth you have now. I'm sure you could make that work. Looks great dude!

    Going overboard.

    Looks awesome. As a suggestion, if you decide to go bioactive, make the bottom and a foot up the sides using acrylic panels/poly carb panels. Looks great and when done right, 100% waterproof.
