Panther Chameleon Husbandry

Setup and Caging

Even though all about husbandry tips have been said- written and having in mind google is now days the most powerful research tool, here is a section with general husbandry tips based on my own experience. Some of the tips here have been also taken from different sources and experienced breeders. If you see I’m missing anything or have any questions, please feel free to email me.

Pick a place for your chameleons cage with low traffic, out of other pets sight (dogs or cats) and a well illuminated and ventilated area, I have observed that if you place your chameleon in a dark room (with proper lighting inside the cage obviously) but if the outside of the cage is dark, the chameleon might stay dark as well. If you place your cage in a well lighted room, chameleons tent to display lighter and brighter colours. Avoid air drafts and cold places.
