There are a few things to consider before making the decision to buy a chameleon. If you take the time to go through this list, you may find your first purchase a little less intimidating. Remember one thing; don’t be afraid to ask questions when you are about to purchase your chameleon. The salesperson should be able to answer most of the questions you have for him/ her. If they cannot give you the answers you are looking for, don’t be afraid to go elsewhere.
Also, take the time to inspect the chameleon carefully. Look for some of the signs of a sick chameleon listed below. You can avoid a lot of problems, and heartache just by being an informed consumer.
The size of the enclosure that you have for your 6-8 week old chameleon, and the size of the enclosure that you will have for your adult chameleon will be significantly different (enclosure sizes vary between species). Typically, a 6-8 week old chameleon can be housed in a 25-35 gallon reptarium (see housing). This will easily fit in most apartments, or houses, but by the time your chameleon is 4 months old, it will need to be moved to a larger enclosure. The size of the final enclosure will vary somewhat between species, but you should have approximately 48″ h x 32″ w x 24″ d of space to use. It would also be best if the enclosure could be elevated off the ground (so the higher limbs are above eye level) in a low traffic area of your dwelling.
