Hey! I am planning on getting a 3-4 month old panther chameleon within the next month, and after countless hours and hours of online research, i think i have all of the information i need to create ideal conditions for my future cham. Sorry in advance for the long post, but i just want to make sure that i am doing everything right and that i'm not forgetting about anything. So if you all could read it over and give me your feedback i would be so appreciative! This forum has given me tons and tons of good information; i am impressed at the vast knowledge and experience of a majority of the members and i trust and appreciate all of your opinions! I'll start with the enclosure: - since the cham i am planning on getting will be about 3-4 months old upon arrival, i plan on using a 38 gallon reptarium (16.5X16.5X30) while he is young and little. As he matures, i am going to be building a custom cage from wood and screen that will probably measure out to be around 48" (maybe 60") tall X 36" long X 18-24" deep. I also plan on using the 38 gallon reptarium as an outdoor cage, it would be very easy to transport in and out of doors for basking in the real sunlight. Lighting: - with the reptarium i plan on using an 18" reptisun 5.0 bulb and a lower wattage (probably around 60) basking bulb depending on the ambient temperatures of the enclosure. Once the cham is moved into his adult cage, i plan on using the 36" reptisun 10.0 bulb in a double fixture with the reptiglo 2.0 broad spectrum daylight bulb. Then a basking bulb of appropriate wattage to get the temp. right. Feeding: - i plan on feeding a variety of insects including crickets, butterworms, silkworms, grasshoppers (when available), moths, superworms, occasional mealworms, waxworms, hornworms etc. Mainly, crickets and the more nutritious worms. I plan on gutloading my crickets and other gutloadable insects with the following: -a nutritious comercial dry gutload - a/d canine/feline perscirption moist food - a variety of greens including collard, mustard, dandelion, turnip, and endive, along with veggies such as squash and sweet potato - watering with flukers calcium enriched cricket quencher Supplementation: - i am planning on dusting the insects with rap-cal herptivite one or two times a month, rep-cal calcium with d3 once or twice a week, and the rep-cal pure calcium at every other feeding. Watering: - i plan on misting up to 3 times a day for up to 5 minutes each time, and probably use some sort of drip system for a few hours each day. Does anyone have any feedback about using a fogger for short amounts to get humidity up in the cage? Live plants: - i recently purchased two nicely sized pothos that are already starting to grow nice hanging branches. These are small enough to both fit in the 38 gallon and i plan on using them in the adult cage too. I was also planning on getting some schellefera (sp?) for the enclosure as well. I will also include some fake climbing vines and branches. Well...i think thats about it! i'm sure i probably forgot something, even though it seems impossible with such a ridiculously long post! Thanks to everyone in advance, like i said before, i really just want to make sure that i'm doing everything right and not missing anything important before i jump into the wonderful world of chameleons!! Thanks!
