Jackson’s Chameleon Outdoor Enclosure

I am making an outdoor enclosure that is 4’H x 4’L x 2’D + the 10 inch planter at the bottom for a Jackson’s chameleon and I just want any opinions on it to see if I should change anything, I have all the plants set up to grow with a misting system that goes off twice a day and I’m gonna get dragon ledges for branches, a feeder cup 2 feet off the floor, and a thermometer and hydrometer.
The pictures show the enclosure getting the most sun I saw throughout the day hitting it for the 3 hours it gets and it’s misting system.

Love it 😍 it looks great! Can’t wait to see it with the branches and lucky resident. Oh btw make sure your area doesn’t get rats if you’re overnighting your chameleon outdoors. I read a thread about a chameleon that died from rat bite injuries. The rat bit thru the screen and chewed the tail and feet 😢

Looks good you will still wan't to ad horizontal basking branches throughout. They like hang out on the leafless branches to bask.

I have only seen 3 small mice the 6 years I have lived here and everytime I see them they die from the rat poison traps in the next day or two.

Here’s the final result, I didn’t get dragon ledges because I found another way to securely put down the branches

Looking definitely really good, a shame I can´t use such enclosure where I live, one due weather and second too many cats and squirls in our garden.
