what would be the best way to keep chameleons hydrated outdoors. keeping a drippers on the cage will over heat in the fl sun.

If you only keep your chameleon outdoors for a short period of time, I would recommend a hose attachment similar to this one I bought at herpsupllies.com. It has an ultra fine mist that uses something like a half a gallon of water per hour. I usually spray the vivarium about every half hour, and only keep my chameleon in the Tampa sun for about an hour and a half total. I find this method to be very inexpensive and rather effective. Hope this helps.:cool: Additionlly,if you plan to keep your chameleon outside for an extend period of time, chameleonnews.com had a good article on outdoor misting systems. Just check under article reference.

In the spring, Home Depot sells a product called a cobra mist which is similar to what edub2017 was recommending.
