also depends on the age of the chameleon,babies need lower temps than adults.
My male(11 months) doesn't like his temperatures to go higher than 90f but he prefers them around 88f
ambient temps around 70f and humidity between 50-60 obviously goes up at misting times.

Our breeders bask between 100-110oF. We always mist in the morning so it evaporates off and gives us a nice dry day after that.

thank you all iv set basking area to 95 and the rest is 80. buy me cham soon. i intend on feeding him and misting him 3 times a day. the food will be in a tub deep enough so crickets dont jump out. how many crickets do you give yours at a time?

No probs, can you squeeze another 10oF onto your basking area? Take it 105oF or even 110oF? Keep a close eye on the humidity if you inted to spray so regularly.

Let us know how it all goes, they are great lizards
