Have Reptile Questions? Ask a Reptile Vet for Answers ASAP
My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years with special interest in reptiles and reptile rescue.
Can you tell me what type of UVB bulb you are using? Linear tube or compact coil?
Strength, age and brand?
Chameleons are sensitive to UVB and we usually do not use bigger than a Reptisun 5.0 Bulb. This may be the problem. With Bearded Dragons and other Reptiles the Reptisun 10.0 is perfect. I suspect the Strength of the new 10.0 may be a little too strong for the Chameleon. You may want to try a 5.0 or 8.0 and see if the Chameleon seems better. This goes over UVB for Chameleons: http://animals.mom.me/proper-uvb-light-chameleons-5053.html
I also suggest that you have an auto mister going as they do need the humidity with the global eyes.
