These strange small Chameleons are very unusually seen in the pet trade. They are a fascinating species and will thrive if kept in the right condiitions. I would recommend keeping these inside in mesh cages with a fan close by so that they have a light breeze during the day. They need to be misted daily and fed every morning. They will eat a variety of small insects and it is important to provide them with as many different types of small insects and possible to ensure they have a balanced diet. I would recommend that you visit them at least twice a day to make sure that they are doing well and they have everything they need. They are very small Chameleons and are only suitable for expert keepers. A very tricky species for lots of keepers.
