I need some help finding an appropriate mesh screen to use for building a panther chameleon vivarium. Does anyone out there have any recommendations? If not, do you think this will be suitable? Butterfly Netting I'm not sure about it as I don't know if it'll take the chameleons weight and also if it will interfere with the basking light and possibly melt??? Cheers

Mesh for panthers is not the best housing due to the humidity requirements. Wooden viv probably better.

I'd like to have a mesh front screen to keep the ventilation up. I'd also like to be able to take it outside, so mesh on top is a necessity and have no idea of what to use, even for that!

Sorry, thought you meant an all mesh viv. Mesh for the top & doors would be ok.

I will be looking for the same thing soon for my panther, at the moment i do not know of a specific one but a mesh made of stainless steel or aluminium is a good start.

B&Q do netting, i think it would be perfect size for a chameleon. there is two different kinds and they are both only £2.98 for 4 meters. only problem, its green so might not go with your decor lol. here are the links.

netting the top one on that page

netting third one down

they also sell staple guns in B&Q for £4.99 with staples included for attaching the mesh.
