hi
just brought home my baby yemen chameleon and put him in his flexarium, he went straight to the top, and i had to lift up the flex to slide something under it and accidentally touched the mesh to the heat lamp and burned a little hole in the top, chameleon is ok but i'm worried about the fumes and also what can i put over the hole? i swapped the lights round but i'm panicking a LOT
he's only tiny :(
what should i do? should i get him out of there? he's currently hiding in his lilac tree next to the water dripper (i just sprayed his tank so he has water, i havent fed him yet though)

if its a small hole cant you tape it up, or stitch the mesh back up with thread?

if not get replacement mesh?

just a few ideas :)

Hi
Is the bulb on a thermostat? If not, it sounds like the temperature is going to be too hot. What temperature is it at the highest spot in the flexarium?
i.e. right on the mesh

I had to cut holes in my flexariumm to get various wiring through...stitched them up again with some nylon thread which left them good as new (stopped any crickets etc escaping though them too)

Just stictch them up with a lttle bit of wire or cotton.

Dont use tape it causes more problems.

Other then that it will be fine.
