I completely agree with you !!! He wakes up at about 8 am and is left until 3 or so, then ill have him out for an hour or two and he is back in until bedtimeNot to be a downer on the parade, but I have had problems with my chameleons when they free ranged outside of their cages to much... For example they are not basking, drinking, relaxing, eating, and so on.
So just like everything in life take the free time with you in moderation because they still need a lot of alone time to take care of their necessities.
Also I only say this because I don't want anyone to go through what I did when I let my cham outside the cage to much.
Other then that he is a cute boy and you guys and gals all look like goofs with chams on your heads!
