PLEASE READ OUR SHIPPING AND LIVE ARRIVAL GUARANTEE SECTIONS!
Size - Males grow up to 22inches, females grow up to 18inches. Ours are 5+ grams and 8+ weeks old
Lifespan - Veiled Chameleons live on average for 6-8 years
Cage - We recommend a screen cage, usually the Zoo-Med Reptibreeze. They need lots of plants and vines to climb and hide. We recommend at least a Medium ReptiBreeze for one adult, or a Large for a Male/Female pair. If you are going to order these cages, please place a separate order for them, as our website will only charge you for the chameleon's shipping charge.
Lighting / Heat - UVB is rerquired to prevent MBD, we recommend the Zoo-Med Reptisun 5.0 tube light. For heat we shoot to obtain a basking spot of 85-90f while having the rest of the enclosure at 75-80f. You can generally do this with the 100w Exo-Terra Daylight Basking bulb. If you are going to order these lights, please place a separate order for them, as our website will only charge you for the chameleon's shipping charge.
Water / Hydration- Veiled Chameleonss don't usually drink from standing water, they drink water from rain and morning dew off of leaves and foliage. We mist our cages 2-3 times daily to hydrate our Chameleons and live plants. You can automate this by setting up the Exo-Terra Monsoon Solo. If you are going to order the Exo-Terra Monsoon Solo, please place a separate order for it, as our website will only charge you for the chameleon's shipping charge.
Shipping - We offer 4 options for Overnight Shipping, all of them can work but we only guarantee FedEx Priority Overnight. This service is guaranteed to arrive by 10:30. FedEx also has a much better policy for refunds than UPS, that is why we don't guarantee live arrival with UPS, so there are cheaper options which can work fine, but we recommend the Priority Overnight. We will call you to schedule shipping and delivery. Shipping this way is $75, this covers the shipping cost, the box cost, and heat/cold packs if required, and GUARANTEES live arrival, or we will refund you/reship you more animals.
Live Arrival Guarantee - We guarantee your reptile will arrive alive and healthy. If you have any problems, or worse it shows up DOA you must contact us within 2 hours after delivery so we can ship you a new animal. We highly recommend having the package held at the Fedex office, and picking your new animal up. The most dangerous part of shipping is during the delivery phase, as the driver can be careless with the package, it is sitting in a Hot/Cold truck, and can be left in the Sun for hours on end without you knowing. The only shipping option to guarantee live arrival is with FEDEX PRIORITY OVERNIGHT, no other options guarantee live arrival. Please choose your shipping options carefully.
