I don't know to much about vields, but I would say that there are some things you're missing on your setup.View attachment 218940 View attachment 218941 View attachment 218942 View attachment 218944 We just got Walter, our veiled chameleon. We got him at Pet Supplies Plus and they told us he was about 6 months old. After reading the threads we don’t think he’s a male but need your help!! Also, should we be using a red night light? We have been reading conflicting views on this. Thank you!!

And welcome to the community
We were told to put the water in the enclosure because they like to use it when they are shedding. We change the water everyday but will take it out. We got our girl at Pet Supplies Plus in a suburb outside of Chicago.Also, something is matching up for me. Where is the pet supplies plus that you purchased this cham from?
Yes we just found out about the lay bin and will be getting that all together with a larger enclosure tomorrow. We just bought this one too ha ha.That is for sure a female, you are gonna want to read the care sheets on veiled chameleons. Lots of changes to make to your enclosure, and you need to get ready for eggs soon.
With regards to your comment on handling, this is a statement said to new owners to warn them off handling just incase the Chameleon is acutually getting stressed. This is actually a case by case judgement.you should make the lay bin a permanent part of her enclosure as it is easier on both her and you. i would also invest on a cheap baby monitor off of amazon so when she is gravid and showing receptive colors you can watch her without disturbing her.
dont handle her that often, it will stress her out chameleons are like fish, look dont touch, maybe once or twice a week would be good.
those cute orange cubes are no good try cricket crack or repashy diet. spinach, collard greens, carrots, sweet potatoes, apples and others are a good gutload
use reptivitamin only once every two weeks
misting, mist 2 mins every time and 5 mins once a day. i would recommend a drainage system
a 2'x2'x4' cage would be good for her.
red bulbs are no good, try a ceramic heat bulb they dont emit any light
live plants can be from pothos to dracanea to ficus it all depends on what you want.
