Photos of the Inside Chameleon Condos With Drainage Pans

My husband Mike built chameleon Condos for everyone a couple of months ago. We already had two condos but needed one for everybody so when it's cool outside I'll have a mist station for everyone inside. In the past I've had to take turns with the two condos, the tub and the shower so this is really nice for me.

Up first is Lottie's condo. There's a few extra photos of it so you can see the lighting, dripper, catch pan and drain pan. You can also see Lottie in the first two photos playing around and having some fun. About 30 minutes after Lottie's mist and drip I put a tree next to her condo so she can get off and enjoy the entire jungle room.


















Up next is Dulce's condo. We have had her condo for a very long time. I just added a tree next to it so she'd have a bigger free range.





Without the tree





This is Spike's free range. He also has a tree next to his.








Up next is Cooper's inside free range. Cooper has been having some health issues and I've been keeping him inside more so that I can keep a close eye on him. He seems to enjoy being in the house with us.








I have my little boys Amos and Andy next to each other with a divider between them. This is Amos first.

I will definitely be making something similar when I move and don't have to rent anymore and I can do as I please with my own place. Are the lamps combined uvb and heat in one bulb?

Jann,

Nice work, I'd keep him around for future projects!

Do you have a drip system in each one?

Cooper has grown into an impressive adult!

CHEERS!

Thank you for your comment. Yes, I use the Megaray all in one bulb in most.

Thank you Nick! Yes, there is a drip system in each one. See the black pipe at the top? You pour the water in there and inside the top dome there's a built-in container that holds the water. You can also see the dripper hose handing down from the top dome. They work great! I will be using them today since it's cool here this morning.

Hope you don't mind if I take a few screenshots. I absolutely love the setups. Is that a dogwood tree in the second pic?
I'm glad that you liked them and I don't mind at all if you take screenshots. Yes, that a fake dogwood Nearly Natural tree. I have several of them and absolutely love them and so do the pets.

Amazing setups!
Don't they want to go up further, on the chains, closer to the lamp?
Thank you for the comment and yes I've had a few go up the chains a couple of times but the lights are low beam and protected by the wire screen cover.

Jann,
Always nice to see your great set-ups! Everyone looks happy! I have been wondering how Cooper's been doing. I hope he continues to do well.

Hm, I may switch to that if I can find it online, I got a huge long uvb light at the moment that I'm a bit annoyed with, accidentally ordered the wrong size.. I also wonder if it would use less electricity.

You should post a how to on making these they are awesome! Nice and space saving but very effective and cham friendly. I'm most interested in how you made the light/dripper/case combo
