Newbie needs help
- View SourceHello Everyone!
I am new to the group. I will be receiving three unrelated Sunburst
Veiled Chameleons tomorrow and need to know a little bit of
information about cage size. I think I've pretty much got a handle
of husbandry otherwise, but am open to all suggestions.
Okay, again, cage size. What is an appropriate size cage for these
youngsters? I would like to purchase cages that will be adequate for
them when they are adults. I just ordered a reptarium-65 gal, to
hold me over until I can get adequate housing for each.
Here's another question. The breeder currently has all three housed
together in a 50 gallon set up. From everything I've read,
Chameleons must be kept seperately. Is that correct? I will have
one male and two females all approximately 4" long.
Just so you know, I do have other reptiles, so I do have some
understanding of reptiles.
Thanks for any and all help!

Thanks for the info. I did house the two females together but, that didn't work. They started figting within days. Fortunately, my new reptarium arrived the same day and I was able to separate them. So now all three chams are in their own enclosure.
I've been feeding them pinheads and waxies. I've tried putting veggies in there, but they show absolutely no interest in them. I figure since their main plant in their enclosure is hibiscus, they should be okay without the veggies until I can convince them to eat them.
I've been spraying the chams three times a day. They have reptisun 5.0 uvb bulbs and a 75 watt spot light. Anything else I should be doing for them?
