  • Your Chameleon - Nosy Be Panther, 2 1/2 months old, Female. Had her for 3 weeks.

  • Feeding - A mix of medium crickets and wax worms. About 8 crickets and 5 wax worms daily.
  • Supplements - I dust with calcium without d3 every day and then a vitamin pack once every 2 weeks
  • Watering - I use an automatic mister that sprays for 1 minutes every 3 hours on half the cage as well as a fogger and a dripper
  • Fecal Description - Huge poops about twice a day. Brown with white urates.
  • History - Hatch date on october 1st. Purchased from cbreptiles

Cage Info:
  • Cage Type - All screen cage 18" x 18" x 36" With plastic shower curtain liner covering 1 side and back to help with humidity.

also humidity at night should be much higher then during the day. Think of it like this at night where they live fog rolls in so they are used to high humidity at night so try to replicate that.

if its in your bathroom take a shower at night before you go to bed and have a foger to produce more humidity thru out the night that turns off in the morning.

Not bad at all, some tweaks:
18" x 18" x 36"
This size is fine for now, they do grow quickly and should be upgraded down the road. Just wanted to mention it for now.
- I dust with calcium without d3 every day and then a vitamin pack once every 2 weeks

Name of Vitamin? Contains D3? How much?

use an automatic mister that sprays for 1 minutes every 3 hours on half the cage as well as a fogger and a dripper
Does the viv dry out completely between sessions? Once or twice a day is plenty. Do you run the fogger during the day?
The heat emitter stays on throughout the night because of cold weather
No heat at night, unless your house gets down into the low 50s at night...

My house does get like 55 degrees at night, very cold. And i do run the fogger during the day i have it turn on every other hour for an hour. And the vivarium does dry out between each session. And heres the picture of the vitamin. I use about a teaspoon every 2 weeks
