What is the ambient and basking temp for a Panther chameleon? My guy eats and drinks great, but he seems like a light brown with his stripe showing. He is 6 - 7 months, and my current basking temp is 88-92.5 F, and ambient is 72 F. Should it be lowered? I have a Reptisun 100 watt bulb for...

I have got everything i need for my chameleon i have just set things up and getting temps right before the chameleon comes i have a bit of a dilemma. For the top basking spot i am using a 100w bulb and i was wandering if chameleons climb the mesh on the screen enclosure because i had it a few...
This idea came from a recent thread:
I'm not so sure about that. It sounds to me like his basking behavior is just several variations on cramming his body in the corner as much a possible. You animal should never have to bask upside down hanging from a screen. Not very natural.
In my opinion...
Hello everyone, I have a quick question about my (or any) panther chameleon. She just laid her 2nd clutch, and I was wondering if raising her temperature slightly would help her metabolize calcium faster? Would she have any need of extra sunlight/d3/or increased basking temps? Would that help at...
Our little panther (F. paradalis) just laid her 1st clutch of eggs, and I had a bit of an interesting situation involving the temperature of the eggs. She laid them on Aug 24th (and one single egg on the 22nd) 23 all together. However, they came quicker than anticipated (17 days gravid...
Perhaps I have overlooked some information somewhere, but I am having a hard time deciding on what is an appropriate basking temp for some of the montane/submontane taxa (Trioceros, Kinyongia, etc). I have been running 40 watt tube incandescents (Sun Glo Bulbs) in 12x12x18, 18x18x24, and...
So, just starting to see some real sun trying to peek out at us the last few days and getting anxious for the good weather to hurry up and get here. In anticipation for sharing some rays with my new chameleons someday hopefully not too far away from now - wondering what minimum temp to be...
I have been looking for ages and still cant find a 100% definate answer to the right temp for my pygmy brev cham.
Like alot of things on this site there are different oppinions so its hard to judge which is right.
some say it has to be 70-75....some say 72 is to low yet some say 72 is just...
I am using the thinkgeek heater/cooler and I'm really wondering how I'm going to get a night time drop in temperature.
I know several have found the closet/basement/pantry method to be successful but what about during summer months when even these places can reach over 70F during the day...
I am working on getting one and does any one know if a drop just down from 85 degrees down to 80 is to hot. It would be like this for at least 2 months a year. And does anyone know how to keep humidity in a room. I wont get it this summer but for next year is it OK or should i get a cheap a/c...
I recently got 5 chameleons of this species (Rhampholeon caudatus) more or less accidentally, and have some questions:
1. Ventilation: I understood that ventilation is important to avoid growth of fungus etc. I am keeping them in a glass terrarium and was thinking to have a net...
Our first chameleon ever! He's stunning and full of personality (we're only on day 2!) You guys are awesome! Confusing and complicated for people who have never owned anything requiring basking light, UVB, gut loading, etc.
