Mellerís Chameleon (Chamaeleo melleri)

Description:

Mellerís Chameleons have a large range of colors in alternately light-and-dark banding. Like all chameleons, they can change color. They inflate this pouch during threat displays. These chameleons grow up to 2 feet long. They can live up to 12 years if taken care of properly. These chameleons are more difficult to keep than others, so they are not recommended for beginners.

Habitat and Tank Requirements:

This species is native to East Africa.

Mellerís Chameleons do well with moss, bark, soil, or reptile carpet as a substrate. Be sure to put enough plants, rocks, and wood in the tank for your lizard to hide in and climb on. These lizards love to climb.

One adult Mellerís Chameleon needs a 55-75 gallon screen cage. They can be very territorial, so they are best kept solitary.

A comfortable temperature for these lizards is around 77-80ļ F during the day with a slight drop at night. LEDs or other low-wattage light bulbs work best for maintaining these temperatures. A small heat pad is recommended for basking.

Mellerís Chameleons need extremely humid climates, which is one of the reasons they can be difficult to keep. They prefer humidity between 95-100%, which can be maintained with humidifiers and misters.

Diet:

Mellerís Chameleons will feed on small crickets, fruit flies, mealworms, wax worms, and any other insect small enough for them to ingest. These animals prefer live food. It is recommended that food be dusted with calcium to prevent bone softening.

Handling:

Allow your lizard time to become accustomed to its new home before handling them extensively. Handling them little by little over a period of time lets the animal get used to you and reduces stress.
