Chameleon Cages Setup
The basics of setting up a proper cage for your chameleon is to ensure you have the proper sizing. The minimum dimensions for adult Chameleons are 24” width, 24” depth, and 48” for height. If you have a smaller female chameleon than you can purchase an 18” width and depth and a 36” height enclosure.
The issue when it comes to chameleon cages is how well it receives airflow. If there is not enough then it can cause stagnation which is not good for your pet. These conditions can cause respiratory problems for you're Chameleon. To help combat this issue, it is important to provide cage venting that can help to move around and push our stale air to create better airflow.
Humidity is another issue when it comes to setting up your chameleon cage properly. The conditions of your home will set up the climate in your chameleon’s cage. To keep a steady level climate, you must be aware of where you are located. In more humid climates it is imperative that you ensure proper airflow and a way to remove the humidity out of the cage. Glass cages have less exposure to the outside air and will be an easier option when it comes to controlling the level of humidity in the cage.
The positives of a glass cage is also a negative when it comes to controlling the heat. Since glass cages retain the elements that enter it, it will also retain the heat. Depending on your location and climate, this can be good or bad. If you keep your home at a moderate temperature, then adding cage lighting to the enclosure will suffice to meet the desired temperature range but ensure since it is a glass cage that you are not overheating it. Having a screen top can help to eliminate this issue.
Making sure that your chameleon gets an adequate amount of water is important and can be challenging. In the wild during rain showers and early mornings, chameleons get their water supply by drinking the water droplets off the leaves from the trees. Since drinking from a water bowl is not part of their nature, they won't drink from them. To keep them hydrated you mush spray a mist over their entire enclosure to mimic rainfall. You can achieve this by using a spray bottle, a dripper system, or an automatic misting system.
