***The Third Official Enclosure Picture Thread***

How long did it take for you to build this? I'm getting my cham in September and i'm going to start building my enclosure in about a month, im doing a lot of research at the moment to get ready for a bioactive. I plan on having it set up for a few weeks so i can get the hang of a bioactive before getting a cham and being stressed about both at once lol.
The build was spread over a few months, so I honestly don't have a solid grasp of the timeline! It was also my first attempt, and a lot of mistakes were made. A more recent 18x18x36 build I was able to complete in about 4 days time (spread over two weekends, with some minor work during the week), and it really only took that long because I'm very fussy haha!

Good luck with your build! I don't check the forums very often anymore, but if you have questions feel free to DM me. 😁

A fairly recent picture of the chameleon build. It's changed a lot over time as I add/remove plants!

Hello new to the Chameleon forums been a lurker for a few months, was wondering if anyone would like to critique my set up, always looking to improve the life of my boy.

CUDI

Ambanja Panther chameleon about 1 year old, male,

His cage is a 18x18x36 screen cage

Inside the cage I have 1 umbrella plant, 1 money tree, 1 pothos, and a mix of artificial foliage, about 3 main branches that give him access to all areas in the cage, Large river rocks covering any soil

2 cricket full throttle feeder cups in different positions

1 bowl at the bottom for his worms/roaches

A ReptiRain automatic mister hangs on the side, with 2 spray nozzles in opposite corners

A Little dripper

Hand mist every so often when needed

1 ZooMed 75w ReptiBasking spot lamp sits on top of the cage

1 14” reptisun T5HO terrarium hood sits on top of the cage diagonally

A zoomed thermometer and hygrometer sitting by basking spot
A thermometer towards the bottom of his cage near where he often hangs out

On 3 sides on the cage I’ve hung a water proof forest themed shower curtain ( more of a fabric not a plastic )

On the bottom I have a grate covered with a screen with a water tray underneath to catch excess water and easy draining

I would love to see a blog post of what you have in here!
 
Almost done. Just have to finish painting the water reservoir and add some more plants. What do you guys think?
Looks incredible, but I have a couple of questions...
How does misting work with the Painted(?) drywall walls, drainage, etc?
Where is the UVB and what type?
Does Millie ever... um... "take a walk"? :rolleyes: What if she decides to? :unsure:
