lele-

The key word is seems. I dont keep them, but if I were I would lite them with a UVB floursent bulb. They would receive uv light in the wild! The floursent bulbs only penatrate UVB up to 12". This is just my opinion. I stick with the panthers!

:Hi John and Justin,

:According to AdCham re: pymies...
:"Lighting: Only a single cool, white fluorescent bulb is required over the length of the tank. Basking and UVB bulbs seem not to be necessary."

:That is quoted from their profile http://www.adcham.com/html/taxonomy/species/r-brevicaudatus.html, which I think I gave to Justin? Maybe not...

::Hi- Yes all chameleons need UVB light. They are a ground chameleon, alot of there light would be filtered out from the trees, but it is need for healthy chameleons!
