So we got our first two Chameleons a few weeks ago from Brian (Reptoman). Jango (Sleeping in the pic) is our male and his sire is Cpt Kirk and Leia is our female and her sire is Spock. Luckily Brian was local so we were able to go to his house and pick them up. What an amazing setup he has not to mention how much help he was. He gave my whole family the extended tour introducing us to all his chameleons. After we left my wife said don't get any ideas, lol. I tend to overdue and overspend on every hobby I have but I also put my whole heart into it. It's amazing in this short period of time how much we have grown to love them. I've learned tons from this site and look forward to getting to know each of you. (Far right cage in the pic is currently empty, for now...)

Welcome, I am new myself. How are those branches being held inside the cage? I would like to do that myself.

They are being help mostly by thumb tacks then where they cross the base of the tree I cable tie them together. I don't fully trust the thumb tacks alone and attach them to the tree adds tons of support. Negative is when I have to remove the tree for anything I will have to cut the cable ties and then reattach new ones when I put it back in.

You'd be surprised how much weight the thumb tacks can hold up. I had a fairly thick branch in my cage held up by 2 tacks at each end AND had the large pothos plant sitting ON the branch. It is amazing, but it all holds up somehow!

If I can get 3 tacks in it I feel much better, seems like with just 2 it wants to spin on you.
