Is it foam that's on the bottom of your cages?
I'm guessing of course...but I would think that foam would be a breeding ground for all sorts of bacteria, and moulds, given the humidity levels required for chams, combined with the cham and cricket excrement.
Obviously I don't know how often you remove it, and allow it to dry out, or how you clean it, but it's just a thought.
:I had a cluth of 22 ambanja babies. over the last week and a half one has been dying per day. they started dying at about a month of age. i have kept the housing clean and been feeding dusted crickets. the temp is about 84 degrees during the day and 74 during night. the humidity is 60%. half have been moved to a screen enclosure and the others are in an aqurium like enclosure. i have stopped spraying the entire enclosure and am careful not to get the babies wet. i still spray every 1 and a half hours getting the sides and the furnishings wet. i dont know what im doing wrong, my last one i found dead 10 mins ago. i also have one baby that looks very healthy but has sores on his back, neck and hand as if he'd rubbed it against the screen. i have put a little peroxide on the wounds(is that ok?). what could that be? hes the only one with those cuts. if anyone haas any ideas , please telll me, thanks in advance.
