I also STRONGLY recommend a linear tube light.
A T5 HO florescent lamp
The coiled/spiral type bulbs at best provide almost no UV at any distance through a screen. And at worse, they cause eye issues and blindness.
It looks like you let your Chameleon get some real sunlight?
I'd take that CFL...
From what I've been told, the wild chams haven't adapted well to captivity and are mostly pretty sickly.
But I'd say that too, if I wanted less competition.
There are sightings here in Broward county. But no common areas like south Dade county.
My 3 male Veiled Chameleons live in 3 XXL Reptibreeze cages.
Each cage has a "Little Dripper" that drips for about 2 hours a day. First thing in the morning. And I have a MISTKING with a nozzle in each cage that mists for 3 minutes 5 times over a 24 hour period in each cage. Each cage constantly...
I had to leave my Chameleons and other animals for 4 days and 3 nights.
I already had my lights and MISTKING on timers. The MISTKING hopper has a 5 day water supply.
In each cage I placed 12 crickets into their usual feeder cups. Let another 12 loose to free range the cages and...

Two of them are 6 months old. One is more like 9 months old. Although sturdy and large and are good eaters, they are not adults.
How old/ large should they be before I offer Hornworms?
Also, how would I offer...
Temperatures guns are great.
I also have one of these placed in the center of each of my enclosures.
The HOME DEPOT, LOWES, WALMART, etc. carry them for about $10 in the garden department.
They show ambient heat and humidity and seem to be at least partially water resistant....
I've never had to...
Has anyone had one of these in a pot for any time?
I bought one to feed the leaves to my tortoises....The tortoises didn't care for them. So I planted the Money tree in the yard and forgot about it.
It grew pretty large.
Eventually I dug it up to move it to a better spot and found a tuber/root...
I used the vinegar smelling "aquarium type" clear silicone. The kind that's been around for decades.
The smell disappears once it dries/cures.
It's a fantastic, flexible, waterproof product.
All of my enclosures have the bottom seams sealed up with it. So that they drain through the center...
