Current Problem-
For the past few days I've noticed my chameleon having problems walking up and down the screen. It seems like he doesn't have a very good grip on it. Also, I've found him sitting behind the pot of his plant where it's dark.

Thanks :)

water? how many times do you dust w/d3, w/o and herpvite? how old are your bulbs? 80 and 85 degrees Farenheit ambient temps or basking temps? does he have any vines or limbs in the cage to climb or just a palm? pics of the set up and chameleon would be very helpful.

Those are the basking temps. I'm terrible with setting up decor in any reptile enclosure. There is a vine in there.
