Thanks for the link but I'm looking for more of what they eat and housing I would probably house mine in a 2x2x4. Are tehere housing similar to a panthers which I have read before is the humidity the same with both chameleons?
i was thinking about keeping him in a 2x2x4 cage should it be bigger? So still not sure about the temps and humidity was thinking about keeping him towards the 70 or 80 for cage temp and 85 or so for basking. humidity at about 50%? hpw does all that sound? i have also read that they are tropical. If you could PLEASE get back to me my birthday is coming up and i was hoping to maybe get one and start on building a cage thank you so much!Not only do Oustalet's get big but they're also pretty active. The bigger cage, the better. When it comes to food, they're not picky at all and, in fact, seem to eat more, proportionately, than other chameleon species on a daily basis. While they can get quite large, they're still happy to eat medium to large sized crickets. When it comes to temps, it's hard to say what's best, in my opinion. Unless you know the locale, Oustalet's really shouldn't be considered a "desert" species because it is so widespread. They're found side by side with panthers in Ambanja, Ambilobe, etc. on the west coast and makes sense that collectors would be bagging those as well as the panthers. I've had some that were fine outside down into the 40's while others that seemed to wilt below 60F at night. All in all though, I've always thought they're a really hardy species.
