Chameleon Condos?

Someday (soon I hope) When i am ready to buy a chameleon I want to get one of those condos for it. I have been looking around in Calgary but no one has any. So heres my questions: Where can i find one in or around Calgary and how much do they cost? Thanks for any help.

Hi Jeff!

Honestly I've never used these particular cages myself, but I just don't think they would be appropriate for a chameleon. I think my biggest concern is that any chameleon might be able to get off/fall off the cage and escape anywhere in your house. Do you have any furry animals that would be interested in eating a cham? Also the UV bulb generally doesn't come included in the package. The only UV bulbs worth using on a chameleon is the flourescent Iguana Light 5.0 or the Reptisun 5.0 (the exact same bulb, just different packaging) or one of those PowerSun UV/Heat combo bulbs. Now the ChameleonCondo is not set up for the use of a flourescent tube, and I don't believe the socket has a ceramic element for the use of the PowerSuns, as those get quite hot!

For the price of them (approx 250.00US) I think there are cheaper, better quality cages that you can buy. Geez, there are even a few members of ssnakess out your way that make chameleon cages.

Others might have differing opinions for you though. This is just my 2 cents!

Cheers!

Trace

I could build you a way better chameleon cage, for less than what they are charging. Let me know if you want me to price one out for you and what you are looking for.

Thanks greg, I will be sure to contact you. I probably wont be buying one for a while though due to lack of space.
