Chameleon trying to escape

Hello everyone I have a juvenile(11 months) Male Panther chameleon and for the last couple weeks he has been absolutely set on getting out of his cage. I can’t even open the door without this trying to get out. I just moved him about a month ago to a 24x24x48 hybrid cage. He has a T5 uvb light bar
Basking temp of 84
And the temp range is 83-75
he is constantly at the acrylic door pawing at the sides. Any tips or further questions would be greatly appreciated!

Is the red light for heat? As far as I know, heard and read, red lights (or colored lights) are harmful for chameleons eyes. Best to just use regular bulbs. Maybe someone correct me, if I’m wrong.

Nope, you are correct.
My males have been very restless lately too. I assume they are feeling the ‘call of the wild’ and have urges to find girlfriends.
