Intro to False Chameleons
Cuban False Chameleons are actually not chameleons! They are Anole lizards that are native to Cuba. They get their name "Chameleon" from their individual moving eyes just like actual Chameleons have. They can get a bit over a foot long and they can live around 10+ years in captivity.

False Chameleon Care
False Chameleons feed readily on a variety of insects dusted with multivitamins and calcium, and even gecko gel diets like Pangea and Repashy. Since they utilize so much arboreal space, decorating their enclosures with foliage, branches, and logs will help them feel safe and offer enrichment. The best terrarium size for a False Chameleons is a 36 x 18 x 36 enclosure. They do well with a hot spot of 90 degrees F, an ambient temperature of 80 degrees F, and a humidity level of 50-70%. The humidity can easily be achieved with proper substrate like Eco Earth, ReptiSoil, or Coco. I recommend Tropical UVB for this species.
