i agree with kinyonga , parsonii are not a good cham for somebody who doesnt have a lot of cham experience, parsonii can get huge and your everyday cham cages are no wheres near large enough or designed accordingly , adult parsonii do not do well in window screen type enclosures , their large claws are too big for the mesh of the screen and frequently get caught, a lost nail or other injury could be fatal, and when you lose a parsonii, you are not just losing an easily replaceable $80 cham. an adult parsonii should have a cage that is at LEAST 5'x6' x 3' and because of the size of the cage you should have advanced lighting, misting, and cleaning strategies, most parsonii are kept in greenhouse or free range situations, you would be best off disscusing the whole thing with an experienced parsonii keeper, i would register for chameleon forums so you can communicate with dean pulcini, if you stress it it will die AND WOULDNT THAT BE A SHAME , the only parsonii that are legally obtainable are verifiable us captive born and there arent that many around
