In general, most chameleons need very large enclosures with good fresh air circulation. Because most of them are arboreal (they live in plants or trees), they need large plants to climb. Many like to be occasionally sprayed with water, and everyone needs a regular source of dripping water to drink. Chameleons need water like any other living thing.
They need it not only to quench their thirst, but also for moisture. In captivity, this can be achieved by spraying your chameleon's enclosure, dripping water from above, or a combination of both. Chameleons are arboreal (they climb trees), so they need vertically oriented habitats with different levels of climbing to regulate their body temperature. Chameleons' natural habits make it difficult to care for them.
Chameleons are arboreal, which means they live exclusively in trees. They need cages with ample foliage for climbing and privacy, and the enclosure must be quite large. They are arboreal and prefer to live in trees, shrubs or shrubs. You should make sure to include some type of tall plant matter in your cage.
Don't buy an LCD bulb, as they don't give off heat and are useless in providing a warm place to sunbathe your chameleon. I put these two together because it makes things easier when you control the temperatures and humidity inside your chameleon enclosure. Perhaps the most common mistake of a novice chameleon owner is not realizing the absolute dependence of chameleons on specific wavelengths of light. To help you achieve this, I've made a list of the 11 essential accessories you need to create a happy habitat for your chameleon pet.
The humidity in a chameleon's cage should correspond to its native environment and be monitored daily. In captivity, this is mimicked by providing a sunlamp that provides a high temperature at the top of the cage so that the chameleon sits directly below and then a temperature gradient across the rest of the enclosure that the chameleon can move through. It's not hard to see why so many people fall in love with chameleons and want to keep them as pets. Chameleons are sensitive to many chemicals and toxins in the environment, and should be kept away from household cleaners, sprays, etc.
This condition, called metabolic bone disease or secondary nutritional hyperparathyroidism, is probably the number one cause of death and growth defects in captivity chameleons. I was always amazed at how much my chameleon animated and showed brighter colors every time I changed its UVB bulb. For example, the heat gradient starts at the sunbathing branch below the heat lamp and extends to the far corner of the heat lamp that the chameleon can access with a branch. A chameleon, first thing in the morning, will find a decent spot, sit in the sun and bask in the sun until it is warm enough before returning to a cooler area.
My slightly longer answer is that you don't smoke in the same room as your chameleon, the screen cage, or anything else, since it's not good for them. It houses separately veiled adult chameleons, as they are aggressive when housed together and do not house different species of reptiles together. But having them with Veiled Chameleons can be problematic if the chameleon bites and swallows the plastic.
