Panther chameleon stressor?

So I got these magnetic rock cliff things a while ago to hold feeder cups for my chams.

Melon is completely fine with it and uses it no problem. I had put one in Lennon’s cage when I got them and he hated it. He just sat there for a day or 2 staring at it until I took it out.

A few days ago I put the same one in Cynthia’s cage. She used it the first day but then yesterday when I came home from work she was kinda hiding. Today when I got home she was still hiding. Then I noticed her staring at the rock cliff so I took it out. Now she’s moving around happy again.

I wonder what it is about these things that panthers hate. Anyone else had this?

They hate change! Doubt it had anything to do with the ledge. Just that you changed their territory up.
Ya probably. But I just put Cynthia in her new cage a week ago so she already had a big change recently. Maybe she was just getting used to it then was like what’s this new thing.

Even when I took it out of both Lennon’s cage a year or more ago and Cynthia’s cage today I put it on the table and they sat at the front of the cage looking at it until I put it in the other room.

Melon never cared at all she just wanted the food out of it.
