Saying this and then making an argument that your EXPERIENCE is the right way to go? Uhm, is this actually someone pulling our leg?Well i don"t think experience is all ways the best way to go
In the glass cage the chameleon doesn't sit under the light all the time in a cold climate...it does sit under the light in a screen cage in a cold climate. Hope that's clearer.Well i don"t think experience is all ways the best way to go,your chameleon has to live in a glass cage under a light at all times or he will g oto cold,my chameleon lives in my sunroom in a wire cage and can go all over his cage and he lives buy a sunroon window where he can get sun at any time of the day . I put a plant light above him and he loves it and if you open his door he will come out of the cage on his on. I have had 3 panther chameleon for 8 years years so i must be doing something right, thank you Robin
I think it can be misleading and potentially even harmful to discuss things in such binary, black and white terms - glass vs. screen, 6% vs. 12% UVB tubes, fogger or no fogger. It's more helpful to talk about appropriate ventilation, appropriate UVB levels / UVI, appropriate humidity.I beleave you should let them live the way they live in the jungles close to the way they are suppose to live. There is so much more of the feel of plants and air and so much more . I am not going to go in to detail but you can not tell me living in a closed in area is better than open,i have a2yr. old and just got my second one today and they have pretty homes of there on to live in and it is not an aquarium with glass that is for fish.Thank you so much.
Just curious - who is Robin?Oh yes i do not have to cover .all 3 sides and they get plenty of water from their sprinker stem. I have never had to cover their sides and i don't think i will.Thank you Robin
I mentioned that females turn dark when breeding.PablotheCham said..." when a chameleon gets darker, it is to absorb more light. dark surfaces are hotter than light ones. so if you were to put you chameleon in the fridge (don't do that) They will get really dark in order to absorb more light and become hotter"...that's not the only reason they turn dark. Females turn dark like the one in Post #19, the bottom photo when they are gravid. They can also turn dark when stressed.
female chams that are breeding turn really dark black with spots on them.
