I just joined the community this evening. Last week I started working at a Boys and Girls Club and they have a pet chameleon that was donated. No one has any clue how to take care of it and so I have been researching. From what I gather, it looks to be in pretty rough shape. The problem I am having is determining what genus and species it is. It is the smallest chameleon I have ever seen and most of us believe it is a baby. I will try to post a pic tomorrow when I go into work, but what would be the first thing I should do to try to save this amazing creature? It is in a wood-framed, screened, reptarium. There is a bulb which definitely provides heat at above the top, but I don't know if it is a UV bulb or not. It does not look like the UV bulbs I use for my turtles. There are several sprays of silk and plastic plants and newspaper covers the bottom. I believe the only thing it has eaten is crickets so far and they are kept in a plastic bug keeper with paper shreds. I set up a drip system for water two days ago but I don't think it has drunk any of it. Maybe it did while I wasn't there.
