Hi- First off you can not keep 2 jacksons in a 38 gal reptarium, chameleons MUST be housed in there own cages, especialy if the female is gravid! Also a 38gal reptarium is not big enough for a sub-adult to adult jackson chameleon! Jacksons like a lower temp and high humidity they are a monate species. You need to get alot of live plants for there cages NOW, if ficus trees are not avalible, then get an umbrella tree, ploth plants (vines) or hibicus, these are the most common used plants, click on the link below to view a list of non toxic plants for reptiles, and links to other good websites for more info. The lighting is it just a full sprectum floursent bulb or is it a 5.0 or higher UVB bulb, YOU MUST HAVE A UVB BULB. If you are using natural sunlight, it must be unfiltered light, windows (glass) will filter out the UVB. As for substrate on the bottom of the cage, do not use anything other then paper towls, and change them every week! Hope this helps!

:I have a young pair of Jackson's and the female is pregnant I was told she looks it. What should I put on the floor of thier cage? They are in a 38 g screen cage. I have a nice full spectrum sun light on them with vine's and leafy vine's. I'm going to get a ficus tree when the weather permit's the store's around here. I will post pic's in a few day's after they get settled in better. They are already eating for me.
