Default what wattage bulb?

Looking at getting a yemen chameleon baby. I know the temp it needs but what wattage bulb would suffice to this? My beardys 100 watt basking light gets to 100 degrees and chams basking area between 86-90 degrees so a 100 watt would be too hot, unless I didnt put a basking spot so close? Or would a 75 watt bulb be better?
Any particular type of bulb or just a heat light for reptiles? I have a spare 100 watt sunglo daylight lamp, would this work?

Thanks.

you will just have to try it out no one can tell you exactly what heating you will need , just try it and improvise.

Ok thanks, I found online it said about 40-60 watt standasrd bulb so I think Ill get a 75 watt - if its too hot it can always move away.
Thanks.
