Yes. Chameleons will almost never go to the ground unless they have to or are forced too. They would not utilize this type of equipment. Past a certain age a basking bulb can be provided for a spot for them to heat up at. This can be accomplished with a incadescent bulb and a dome reflector. The distance between the branches, wattage of the bulb, size of the reflector, will all play a role in achieving the proper basking zone safely.
