bad set up - Link opens in a new pop-up window This very typical and terribly incorrect set-up was found in a pet store. The picture quality is not great because Ibad set up - Link opens in a new pop-up window tried to take the pictures without being noticed. The idea is to show the DON'TS of chameleon keeping. This female veiled was in an all glass aquarium with a solid top. I was able to get them to put a screen top on it, bad set up - Link opens in a new pop-up windowand I showed them how to make a dripper from a styro foam cup. Notice the way she  came right to the water when it was dripped in. It was already much too late. If you look closely you can see the dark rings around her sunken eyes. She was badly dehydrated and probably suffering from a URI (Upper Respiratory Infection) as well. Her tongue was  dark yellow with black spots, not the light pink that a healthy chameleon should have.

CHAMELEON CANOPY

Chameleon Canopy - Link opens in a new pop-up windowThe TOP DOME creatively conceals both the lighting system and the drip system. It also keeps chameleons from escaping because they can not grip on to the wide smooth rim. On the rear side of the Top Dome is a fill spout for adding water to the adjustable flow rate drip system. The CONFINEMENT BOWL prevents chameleons and live prey items from escaping. Its smooth inner surface keeps crickets and chameleons from scaling the wall. The system also keeps crickets from climbing up the ropes-- they are always trapped inside of the confinement bowl. Only your chameleon can explore the free climbing area.

 Unique, interesting appearance, GREAT roaming cage, difficult to control temp and humidity-only suitable for  limited species if used as permanent home.
