The Natal Midland Dwarf Chameleon (Bradypodion thamnobates) is an chameleon indigenous to the Natal Midlands. They do very well in outdoor mesh enclosures and seem to benefit greatly from the wind outdoors. This is a requirement for their care and they do a lot better outdoors than indoors. Here I provide mine with crickets every morning mixed in a calcium supplement. They need a lot of sunlight and a heater if they are kept in cool areas. They can survive cold climates but need a mean temperature of about 24°C. An easy species to keep but I would only recommend them to advanced keepers because of their setup requirements.
