Reptariums are garbage. They're too dark. Not enough UVB passes through. The zippers fray the fabric, and crickets can chew them up and escape. I would also not recommend housing Veiled Chameleons together. As they mature sexually, they are solitare creatures in the wild. Only if you had an enclosure of immense size would I suggest housing them together. Have you found any literature on the species you intend to keep? If you haven't yet, I would suggest a couple of books. Care and Breeding of Chameleons, by Phillipe de Vosjoli and Gary Ferguson and Essential Care of Chameleons by de Vosjoli as well. A little bit dated but very sound advice for keeping Chameleons. Also do a search on the internet for Chameleon refernces. Back to the cages, the bigger the better. Most would recommend 4x2x2 for an adult male and slightly smaller for the female. You'll also find that alot of people have wasted valuable money on reptariums. Advertising is an amazing thing, huh? Do alot of reseach before you buy. You'll be better off and so will your animals! Good luck!

:Would a 65 gallon reptarium be suitable for a pair of Veileds. If not is it okay for one. This wiil be my first cham. THANKS IN ADVANCE
