New cage set up

Looks like you're still using the wrong type of UVB bulb.

Like you said, it needs a ton more foliage. Live plants preferably. And add some thinner branches in there, too. Everything looks very thick.

Did you make the many other husbandry changes that were suggested to you in your first thread? You haven't responded to anyone asking about that, even though you are clearly online still. Just so you know, we all remember and are paying attention...

Hiya, as above, some thinner branches that go horizontal would be great. Also as above, that UV isn't correct at all and will do nothing but cause health problems.
A nice branch for basking on also needs to be provided, lots more foliage and if you don't have one, a thermostat for temperature control.

About responding I’ve just been messaging some people about it on here. And what type of uvb should I get? ( links would be much appreciated)

In my opinion you should look into getting a biodegrable pot for the plant, plant a pothos ( they grow like crazy) to help the humidity.

For the branches that are in there they might be a little too big for your chameleon to grip. You should look into different various sizes of safe climbing items. Get a roll of fishing wire to hold everything together. Here’s some links for ya

They can be cut and tied together with fishing wire and held to the screen cage very sturdy with the wire. I’d highly suggest using one of those for the climbing necessities. If your chameleon has never been introduced to moss/mossy type items be cautious because they could decide they want to eat it.

Ok I get my pay check on Monday so I’ll get some of that as soon as I can. Is the bulb in the fixture wrong or is it the fixture

Not doubting u just course what health problems can it cause and why would they market it specifically for chamilions. What type of light do u use / recommend

The cage insides look amazing so far. But I need to add a suggestion, I love that raccoon picture hanging on the wall but a raccoon is an animal of pray. Your chameleon may stop eating and drinking because of this picture, as your chameleon will be afraid of the raccoons. So there is a few things that you could do, option 1, move the picture to where your chameleon can't see it or option 2 use some kind of divider like table cloth. Best regards, Micky 23

The dual dome can still be used for a basking bulb but that coil bulb is useless. It doesn't produce enough uvb in enough of an area deep enough for any chameleon. They market them because they made them and they need to sell them.

Oof didn’t even think of that. I have a leopard gecko next to his cage but stays mostly hidden is that all right
