Please tell me that's not how you are keeping him? He's climbing background as he has nothing else to climb on. Did you do any research beforehand or did you just get him on a whim?

Please, please, please post all the info plus better pics and understand that chams need very specific husbandry and are costly to keep. Without doing things right, you could be sentencing him to a slow death.

Start by reading the care sheets and post the completed form.
