About Chameleons

Bearded dragons are one of the most commonly kept pet lizard in the UK today. Because of their active, inquisitive nature, they're a firm favourite with families who enjoy keeping reptiles. The longest living chameleon species can have a lifespan at home comfortably over 10 years.

Chameleons are found in the wild in warm habitats around the globe ranging from desert to jungle environments. Chameleons like to spend part of their day 'basking' at high temperatures to warm their body. Once up to temperature, they will often move to cooler areas. Whilst basking, bearded dragons also absorb strong UVB from the sun which enables them to produce vitamin D in their body which is essential for utilising calcium.

The chameleon diet consists mostly of invertebrates but many will supplement their diet with vegeatation. Chameleons are particualrly fond of insects and worms, but can tackle larger prey if they wish!

It's easy to provide the perfect environment at home for most species of chameleon. Northampton Reptile Centre have everything you will need and have expert staff who can help you every step of the way. Contact us for more information.
