If you want to get chameleon who are easier to take care of, then you can get Jackson’s, Panther or Veiled chameleons. Remember that chameleons which are juvenile can still grow quite a bit so make sure to buy a cage which is twice the size of your chameleon.  When you bring chameleon in your home, put him into a cage of tall glass with mesh ventilation. Interacting with your chameleon is not that needed but can be a real fun.  As I said above that each of the chameleons have different personalities and some likes to be handled by others while some not.
Remove all the dead things from the bottom of the cage, otherwise bacterias and parasites will come.
You should remember that chameleons are solitary and they do not like other chameleons, so if you think that keeping two chameleons will be a good idea as they will keep each other company then you are absolutely wrong. Since chameleons are arboreal, tall cages are required but that sill have large ground area.
Ceramic heat bulbs are generally not recommended as chameleons are not typically attracted to non lighted heat sources. Night lights are typically not recommended with chameleons as they tend to benefit from a temperature drop at night. Since chameleons are arboreal, shy, tree dwellers, it is very important to provide arboreal refuges that they can hide in and feel secure.
In addition to live plants, a series of horizontal and diagonal branches of varying diameters should be provided throughout the enclosure for the chameleon to travel on. With the exception of Brookesiinae, chameleons generally do not need a substrate in their enclosures.
The general concept of chameleon cages are largely the same, but there are many ways which you can personalize your chameleon cages and make them more convenient for your use and maintenance. It might make sense to buy the biggest cage straight away so that you don’t have to keep changing your chameleon cages. So it is advisable to upgrade your chameleon cages along the way as your chameleon grows larger. Plants and branches in your chameleon cages serve as important foot holds for your chameleon to bask in.
Your chameleon need to thermo-regulate by basking at different ambient temperature, so you need at least two basking spots in your chameleon cages. Try using hard trees like umbrella trees so that minimal maintenance of the tree is required. For branches that are too large to fit in your oven, you can soak them in a large trash can with bleach water.
When placing plants in your chameleon cages, try placing taller ones in the back and shorter ones in front for maximum visibility of the cage. Well, I bought this bird cage from some relatives a while back, and they were using it for their ferrets, with tons and shelves, etc. OPen caging will not work unless you can cover the cage up with the plexiglass, as they are a high humid species.
Well, they make great pets but if you want them to stay healthy and happy then you’ll need to set some things up.
Most of the chameleons which are on the sale are usually three to eight weeks old.  Different chameleons have different personalities, some like to interact with people while some not.
You can also put some things in the cage in order to make your chameleon comfortable such as fake plants, real plants, proper lightning and moisture, climbing limbs etc. If you see him licking any shiny objects, then he is doing is because he feels thirsty and looking for dew for licking.   You can spray on the side of the tank or on leaves by a spray bottle so that your chameleon can lick. The best way to interact with your chameleon is feeding him by your hands as he will not be aggressive towards you.


Before doing so, remove your chameleon to some other safe place so that he will not get disturbed. Most glass enclosures have minimal ventilation and that which they do have, is generally not adequate. These enclosures are specially designed to maximize airflow with ventilation in the front below the doors and screen tops. At the same time, they need to be able to escape the heat of a basking area to a more moderate ambient temp.
Baskin bulb wattage should vary depending on ambient temperature conditions and the species so that a sufficiently warm basking spot is provided yet the ambient temperature of the enclosure is not excessively high. Heat rocks are absolutely not recommended as they are known to frequently burn reptiles and are of little use to an arboreal animal. If temperatures get too cold however, a ceramic heat bulb or red bulb can be used to increase the temperature slightly.
Substrates can increase pathogen levels, increase the danger of impaction and make maintenance difficult. For information on the construction of suitable tanks, read the following article: Constructing a Stump-Tailed Chameleon Habitat. Once the lip was set we mixed a batch of fiberglass resin and painted two thick coats all over the bottom wood, edges where the wood met the glass (so water could not drip down the glass and contact unprotected wood) and 4" up the back wall where the substrate would touch. Male chameleons tend to be larger than female chameleons, and will attain a larger body size in adulthood.
However, imagine how it must be like for a baby chameleon in a full sized adult chameleon cage. A basking lamp is typically placed above chameleon cages and the higher up the cage, the warmer the ambient temperature. But ideally, there should be multiple basking spots placed at different levels throughout chameleon cages to provide different temperatures to bask in.
You can adjust the temperature of your chameleon cages by adjusting the distance of the bulb from the basking site instead. It's been sitting around holding all my stuff, because I couldn't pass up the cage, but don't really want a bird right now. I'd be worried about all of the critters getting loose and the humidity escaping in that cage. I guess I could cover all the sides in plexiglass, but I'd probably be better off buying a whole different cage Is there any species that doesn't need quite so high humidity? Read on to find out what kind of chameleon you should get and the requirements of caring for them.
So, if you want to know whether your chameleon likes people, watch him closely while he is being fed in the pet store. You should avoid feeding them wasps and bees.  If you have a baby chameleon then you will need need to feed a smaller breed of crickets, they can also survive off of fruit flies.
You can also buy a waterfall for your chameleon from any pet store which might be a little expensive but is nice.
Many petstores and a select few keepers often recommend glass enclosures and those not familiar with basic chameleon husbandry often take this advice as it is typical of most other reptiles. It is very important to avoid air stagnation as chameleons are prone to respiratory illnesses which can quickly manifest themselves in glass enclosures due to the high humidity and water buildup at the bottom of the tank due to hydration needs.
These enclosures create a chimney effect resulting in airflow throughout the enclosure that aquariums are not able to produce.
Paper towels, newspaper or bare care bottoms are preferred and should be cleaned regularly.


But before you use any dead branch you picked up from outside in your chameleon cages, always make sure you treat them first.
Just make sure the bulb remains in a safe distance from both your plants and chameleons to avoid burns.
You have probably see the term gut – loaded crickets which actually mean that the crickets have been fed a very nutritious diet which will help the lizards to get all the required nutrients. Some people have even teach their chameleons to drink water from a bottle but this will take a lot of time. Then spray it on the floors, walls and the things under it like fake plants but do not spray it on real plants, you can use a paper towel in order to clean and dry them off. Similarly, large enclosures are extremely expensive in glass and are much more reasonable in screen. Care should be taken in these enclosures, however, to ensure that the enclosure dries out between misting to avoid respiratory and skin infections.
High intensity, long distance output UV bulbs like MV (Mecury Vapor) bulbs should be avoided except in large enclosures where UV rays have the needed distance to dissipate and provide a gradient.
While some use fake plants, live plants are generally much preferred by experienced breeders and the animals themselves. UVB has a low penetration in the ambient environment, so you need to make sure that you chameleon is basking in an area that is allows it to get enough UVB light.
I've done a bit of research, and it seems to be more than big enough for the species I looked at, and would be easy to decorate. The way humidity is kept up, most often, is the use of lots of nice safe live plants, and constant misting.
You might have also see the term calcium – busted crickets which will help your chameleon to get the required calcium.
At the same time, they should be able to have access to UV and heat without being forced exposure to the other. In smaller enclosures, florescent tubes like the Reptisun 5.0 are recommended as their intensity and radiation distance are significantly decreased. One benefit to live plants is that they help increase and maintain humidity in the enclosure. Chameleons also enjoy insects like meal worms, wax worms, flies,  super worms, grasshoppers and moths. You should also change the material on the floor regularly in order to remove shed skin, dead bugs, fecal matter, fungus or mold etc. As a result, gradients are of critical importance in chameleon cage construction (See article Gradients in Cage Design).
One should use caution to only use nontoxic species however as many chameleon species are known to eat some leaf matter and in other cases, insects in the enclosure can chew on the plants. I can't think of anything that would make this not work, as long as I get the mercury vapor bulb to reach the entire cage, a dripper system, and lots of plants, especially since the space between the bars is very small.
