ok so ive always wanted a chameleon i finally bought one this weekend. i def did research about what they need. reptisun 5.0 tube light not a compact. the recomended cage size. 3foot tall by 2 wide and 1ft deep. screen no tank. heat bulb with dome. plenty of vines and leaves to hide and climb on. not too much. varied perches. i bought crickets and meal worms. i plan on buying a auto mister so i dont have to worry about him getting deyhdrated while im a work. ok so i found after the fact that the guy i bought it from was an idiot. i knew i had to have a uvb bulb and said no i didnt. right there i should have walked away but whatever. i bought him. he seems healthy. he drinks fine he was a little thirsty when i first got him home. i guess from being at the show all day. drinks right from my sprayer. i do not directly spray on him. i just put it to the branch and he licks from in between. so i havent seen him eat. i kno he sees the crickets or meal worm but just wont eat it. i only got him saturday. so is he still adjusting? and i hear conflicting advice on whether to shower him or not? also what is a good heat bulb? i bought a red glass night bulb so that if it gets too cold at night i can turn it on. but i was reading someone elses post and it said no incandescent bulbs... im not sure if this is one. please specify for me so i know im not going to hurt him.. also i hear varied advice on dusting crickets. how often should i dust food. sorry so long i just wanted to give plenty of info so i can get good responses.


i attached some photos so u can have your own opinion.
