Products I Use

Hello, you’re here because you bought my ebook and for that I thank you so much for putting your trust in me to help you become a better chameleon keeper. This is a list of the equipment I personally use to keep my chameleons thriving. I have used several different brands of equipment over the years, but these are the ones that have served me best.

Hopefully this list will help take the guess work out of what brand of equipment to buy, so you can just go ahead and click the links to take you straight to the products and build your chameleon’s set up hassle-free.

Cage: The best option is a 24x48x48 inch screen cage by Reptibreeze. This has been a constant in all the time I’ve been keeping chameleons

Heat Lamp: Flukers are a solid brand that are well-built and fairly priced. This model has a dimmable switch too in case you need to reduce the temperature at times. Don’t forget to pick up a couple of their bulbs too.

UVB Light: The Reptisun LED UVB hood is my lamp of choice. It comes with an LED daylight built in that will help your plants thrive and will display your chameleon’s colors much brighter.

Thermometer & Hygrometer: This Reptizoo model is great for its accuracy and the fact it enables you to measure temperature and humidity levels at the same time. I also use this infrared thermometer, so I can measure the temperature of the chameleon itself and anywhere else in the enclosure.

Automatic Mister: For durability, reliability and performance, nothing beats the aptly named MistKing. It’s not cheap, but it blows every single other mister I’ve used out of the water.

Automatic Fogger: For keeping humidity levels raised at nighttime, I use this Reptizoo model.

Power Strip: Gotta power all those lights and misters somehow. The Zilla Reptile Strip is designed especially for reptile set ups as it has multiple sockets designed especially for reptile equipment and has digital timers built in for each one.

Vines & Branches: Using real branches is fine if prepared properly, but I prefer to use these bendy vines by Flukers. I have one of each size, and they can be bent in different directions all over the cage and easily attached using cable ties. You can of course use them in conjunction with real branches.

Feeding Cup: I usually let my chameleon’s food loose in the enclosure but I sometimes cup feed too. This one from Full Throttle Feeders is excellent and holds well to the side of the enclosure.

Plants: This is a personal choice and I recommend checking out my list of safe plants to help you choose. Personally, I always have pothos as they’re so hardy and grow really well, a ficus for good looking foliage and a Hibiscus for flowering. I have others as well but these are the ones I use most often.

Supplements: For this I use Repashy Superfoods that has both multivitamins that I use twice a month for my veilds. I then use just a standard calcium powder for every feed like this one.
