Diet & Nutrition
A healthy Chameleon will be active, with wide, bright eyes and skin. To help keep your Chameleon healthy and happy, you will need to provide a balanced diet of live insects and raw vegetables.
Your Chameleon will however become bored eating the same food all the time, so it is important to provide variety in their diet or you risk your pet going on hunger strike and refusing to eat.
Hatchlings and juvenile Chameleons will need a constant supply of food, while adults will be content with feeding every second day.
As a rule, choose live food which is no large than half the size of your Chameleons head.
Like most reptiles, your Chameleon will need a calcium and vitamin D3 supplement. If your lizard is lacking D3 and calcium it can get metabolic bone disease which can be fatal.
Your Chameleon will need regular water to keep him hydrated, but unlike other pets, he will not be able to see water, and rather will lick it off leaves and branches. For this reason, you should mist your Chameleon's habitat daily with clean water.
