Both are good ways to keep chameleon.
Free roam: free roaming will be slightly cheaper, as no reptarium/screen cage will be needed to be bought and theres no worry about the lack of ventalation. Ive never tryed free roaming but i guess it will give chameleon a more natural way to be housed. Some bad things about free roaming is there are wanderers, they can go for a wander round your house and if doors are left open, they cud get to anywere, so it is properly best to make it so they cant escape. I think humidity would be a problem as well, as things around it will end up damp and the whole room will be himid as it will spread. Also the chameleon will really need to be 100% handfed, unless you want a house full of bugs and no food left for a poor chameleon. These are just my opions of free-roaming, remeber i havnt attually tried thing, oh n also, Chameleon Condos look like a really nice free roaming setup, a 6foot walless cage hanging from the celing, how cool (www.chameleoncondo.com).
Screen caging: screen is the best way i think, and is most popualar. it gives plenty of ventilation. It is a less natural way to house chameleon as there caged and unable to explore were they want. keeping crickets and other bugs in isnt a problem if you have small holes in your screen, and there quite easy to keep humidity in (providing you have lotz of live plants). You can also secure banches alot better to the wall of the cage when will a free roam setup you cant have branches.
My opinions... jamie
