Temperment:

Notoriously cranky, Chameleons are a more look but don?t
touch pet. Some are quite happy to be handled as long as it is on their own
terms. Chameleons are unusual as they can change colour depending on mood, this
is great indicator of stress with darker colours. With a projectile like tongue,
independently moving eyes these are a wonderfully weird pet.

As with many animals the more unusual they are the more
difficult they can be to care for. Chameleons require strict maintenance of humidity
and drinking opportunities. They will not drink unless the water is moving,
making misting and drippers very important. Not only that they are more prone
to MBD which can be fatal, a good UVB tube and a supplement regime as well as
gutloading bugs is the best way to eliminate the possibility.

Chameleons do particularly well in bioactive vivaria, a
happy chameleon is when you look into his enclosure and think it is empty!
