This is my enclosure and I'm still working on adding more I have several plants that need to go back in. I just moved from an apartment to a house and have been slacking BIG time. Close up photo shows the basic ledge attachment essentially heavy duty zip ties to the ledges.How do you attach things to the Dragon Ledge?
Right but you may need to search out some info... IT is out there. Here is the link for the ledges. https://dragonstrand.com/dragon-ledges/I just want to get a feel for how to do it before I buy them, because I’m not a great do it yourselfer.
If you feel this way with just the cage set up then you may want to consider it. There are so many ins and outs to these guys and it is expensive to provide everything they need... Not to mention if you have to go to the Vet.
There is a ton of info a tips in the "Enclosures" section of the forum. You dont "need" to hang anything unless you cant find a safe plant that is tall enough.
Mine did that too, he wasn’t even eating.. chilled at bottom of cage..... Nothing a few fat juicy hornworms can’t fix.... Mine was stressed from all the movement in my house, I got a palm tree, planted 2 more plants to the point I can’t see him at all except when he’s basking. He’s way more happy, stopped shedding, and is back to Being the old Grumpy Chameleon.My juvenile (don’t know his exact age) veiled chameleon seems to be constantly molting. Should I be concerned?
You're joking, right...? "Fine" isn't good enough. If you actually care for this animal, then don't you want to provide it the best enclosure possible? If you're not willing to make the changes he needs, then you are obligated to re-home the poor thing.
The it is good enough attitude is never the right attitude with chameleons... There is a reason why they react the way they do in captivity. When their environment is not correct it directly impacts them. When their supplements, lighting, temperatures, Humidity levels, Gutload for feeders is not correct it directly impacts them. When one thing is off they get sick and die.
There is no easy way to set up a proper enclosure. It is going to involve some degree of hard work and determination to learn and apply what is required. This goes for everything in life...
