I will be presenting a live online class on how to set up a chameleon cage this week and would like to invite anyone interested in making your cage a living environment. Here is the description:

In this online course I will introduce you to using the cage to create a sanctuary for your chameleon. We will do away with the idea that the cage is for containing a creature and replace it with the perspective that the cage is the borders of a floating garden that nourishes the chameleon inside. For this we need to understand a day in the life of a chameleon and what we need to provide for our chameleon’s physical and emotional well being.

Chameleon husbandry is a huge topic and so we must take it one step at a time. This course is a high level look at chameleon husbandry and the mindset we need to have. We will focus mainly on the “Forest Edge 4+4” checklist which we can use to gauge the effectiveness of the cage interior. We will run through what a forest edge is and review the 4 Gradients (heat, UVB, humidity, exposure) and the 4 branches (perching, drinking, eating, sleeping). Using this checklist you can start evaluating cage designs with respect to the needs of the chameleon.

Sections include:

  • Understanding a day in the life of a chameleon
  • What is important about the cage itself
  • Introduction to the Forest Edge 4+4 components
  • How to plan and arrange the cage interior
  • Monitoring success
  • Using plants
  • Introduction to light and hydration
This class will benefit people wanting to come at their chameleon husbandry with the chameleon’s needs in mind.

This class is free and requires only a computer or mobile device with one of the major browsers. This is a live presentation and will support a moderated chat. The class lasts about 1.5 hours with an interactive Q&A section afterwards.
This class will be held Thursday May 7 at 6PM PDT and Saturday May 9 at 10AM PDT. These are both the same class given so you need to sign up for only one. Though you are welcome to go to both if you would like to relive the experience!

Yes, this was wonderful. Having all aspects condensed into one class was fantastic. Let us know when you post the youtube of it so we can give the link out.
This was a whole lot of fun! We are definitely doing this again!

I am getting to work on that YouTube version and will let you know when it is up.

Thank you all for coming and hanging out!
