New Member
I am currently housing an Elliot's Chameleon. So far, so good. I've had him since 8/7/19. He will only grow to be between 10 to 12 in. At this point he's only 6 in.

Colors: Dark brown, Bright green

Food: Live crickets, wax worms so far.
Water: Dripper / Mister bottle (Once every 4 to 5 hrs) Use bottle water (no tap)

Lighting: 60W blue bulb for heat; 5.0 UVB bulb ( 75W night bulb for nights/none is fine if the house is warm)

Enclosure: Medium Reptibreeze.

Activity: Calm / Hardy (unless startled)

Temperature: Between lower 70°F and Mid 80°F, no lower than 65°F

You should never use a heat bulb at night for chameleons. They cannot sleep correctly with any sort of light on at night, regardless of color. Unless temps drop below 50F at night, no supplemental heat is needed. Cool night temperatures are actually important to chameleon health. If you must use a heat source, it has to be a ceramic heat emitter, which produces no light.

Blue lights are also not at all recommended for chameleons. Just a typical white incandescent is much better
