Better to seperate them unless you have a HUGE cage, I mean HUGE. One will always TRY to dominate... get the best of everything so to speak, and thats where the problem is, competition to eat, to get a better spot for basking. That means constantly living in a STRESSFUL mode.

I tried this twice, with werneri, once becuase the pair just seemed to be very docile with one another, and I had a large cage. The second time did not work, the female was very stressful around the male and gaped to the point of almost falling off her branch. That was it ,... I saw the stress and understood how terrible it must be to live each day that way.

Can you imagine a bully in your home that will not allow you to eat until he leaves, or sit unless he's away, sounds FUNNY to us, but it's kind of how it is and can not be a very calm/ peacful existance or healthy for any creature.

I just jumped in to say Hi , welcome to the forum , best wishes with your new chameleons. If you have any questions you sure have been speaking with one of the very best in my opinion , Carlton. There are alot of people here who have much experience, and I'm sure witht their help you will do fine.

Enjoy the forum !
