Verrucosus - winter temperature


New Member
Hi, i have a question: How important is for Verrucosus winter drop of temperature. Some breeders tell me that is important some no. In room where will be a terrarium is night temperature in winter 18 C (64.4 °F) and i don't know if this temperature is too high or no. :confused:

I want to buy a chameleon from a breeder (not import).
Thanks for all replies


I use winter-temperatures between 15 and 18 degrees. A proof that this method works is the fact that my male is finishing his fifth winter in my conditions right now. Most people claiming that the winter cooling poeriod is not necessary have only a few months experience.

If you house stays above 50 degrees inside you really won't need a heat source. If it does, you can get one of those little ceramic heater bulbs that screw into your dome. They do emit light.
