Hmm... You have a very good point - and I'll admit to not knowing *alot* about chameleons, I guess my thinking was that with eye problems, keeping the eye properly lubricated is crucial. Chams, with their highly specialized eyes most likely won't eat if they can't see properly - my knight anole didn't, and they have similarly specialized eyes. Adding humidity would be the easiest hands off way to do this. Actually I always thought there was a major contradiction in what people are told about cham care - on one hand humidity, humidity, humidity; on the other - ventilation, ventilation, ventilation. Was never quite sure how you were to accomplish both at the same time. Guess maybe you're not supposed to. Thanks for the correction! :)

: Lisa, I'm not sure if humidity would work on this chameleon. It's a veiled chameleon, and whil they do prefer the hotter temperatures, they are dry scrubland animals. I've always read that it's a popular misconception that chameleons need higher humidity. Warmer temps could improve his condition. But I wouldn't get the humidity too high, it may do harm.

: Just a thought, if I'm wrong, please correct me.
