so currently I have a 4 month old panther chameleon. I feed him once a day . Currently his eating 14 crickets and 3 wax worms every day. I dust the crickets lightly with rephashy calcium plus ever feeding. I gut load the crickets with highlighter chameleons dust and carrots. The cage I’m currently using is a reptibreeze16x16x30 With a 50 watt heat lamp and T5 H0 15 watt uvb . They are currently running 12hrs on. My Basking temp is between 85-88. While my ambient has been at 80. My mist king runs at 7pm -2mins , 12am-2mins and 650am-2mins.The fogger runs from 130am-6am.

Hi! :) Cute little guy! I can see a few things to improve on. Can’t go into much detail as I’m working.
Feeding your feeders more fresh greens, veggies and fruits is always a good thing.
Adding more variety of feeders is also a good idea.
I can’t comment on feeding amount as I got my panther as an adult.
I’m not really liking using the Repashy Calcium plus at every feeding…it’s too much vitamin/minerals for daily. I would suggest using a phosphorus free calcium without D3 at every feeding and use the Calcium Plus one feeding every other week.
Your little beauty will soon be needing more space. A 2x2x4’ enclosure or equivalent is the minimum for an adult.
Temps are a bit high. I would keep him a little cooler, like around 82-85. If you’re able to bring ambient temps down, that would also be good. Of course, having a good night time temp drop is desired.
What has your humidity been?
If you could add more live plants to his enclosure, that would be great.
You’ve got a good start…just need to build and improve on some things. :)
Just in case you need them….
