Do chameleons need a heat bulb at night? [VIDEO]


Chameleon Enthusiast
A lot of people are afraid of their chameleon getting cold at night. But the truth is, chameleons actually benefit from a temperature drop at night and need total darkness in order to be able to sleep. Most homes are warm enough for a chameleon at night that no additional heat source is needed. If your home stays above 50F then your chameleon is just fine. If it drops below 50F then you'll want to use a ceramic heat emitter, portable room heater, or wrap the sides of the enclosure. It's also worth mentioning that red head bulbs should never be used with a chameleon under any circumstances. If you like my videos, click this link to subscribe:
