I just want as much advice as y’all can give me. I want my little man to thrive and be a healthy happy champ!



Chameleon Info:

  • Your Chameleon - Veiled Chameleon, Male, juvenile baby. Assuming a month or less (pet store didn’t tell me)
  • Handling – Very little. Just got him a couple days ago. Had to remove him yesterday to put more foliage and Hidey holes in the enclosure.
  • Feeding – at least 10 crickets a day.
  • Supplements - Repticalcium
  • Watering - My reptirain broke straight out of box, waiting for a new one, in the meantime using a standard water bottle to spritz down enclosure every 6 hours or so.
  • Fecal Description – He hasn’t pooped yet that I’ve noticed. Found urate, and it was white.
  • History – None yet. But I’m like a new mom, even though I’ve done the research, I feel like I’m doing everything wrong. So I’m just a big ball of stress
Cage Info:
  • Cage Type – Med mesh enclosure, 18 w X 30 h X 18
  • Lighting – 50 w basking light and 26 w uvb spiral bulb. Waiting for the tube lighting. I have a nocturnal infrared 50w light but my house is usually kept around 75, so I read that he doesn’t need it?
  • Temperature – Basking spot 85-90, rest of cage 72-80 (lowest point to highest) he’s spends a lot of time basking. But I assume it’s because he’s tiny. Will move around as well though
  • Humidity – I don’t have a humidity reader yet (the shop was out) getting one today
  • Plants – Lots of artificial plants
  • Placement – In my room by a window
  • Location - US, San Marcos. Tx
