    Yes, keeping the humidity up in a screened enclosure is a challenge, But a screen enclosure is a must from what i've researched. They need air circulation to prevent respiratory problems and above all, They do not need to be seeing their reflection that glass sides would show. If they see their reflection, They will think it is another cham and they will try to attack and hit the glass or they will simply be stressed all the time.
    I keep the humidity in by wrapping the sides with "Landscaping fabric" or cloth. It is a cloth made up of nylon fabric that will help hold the moisture in and let air circulate at the same time. It is also colored black, so he can't see through it to other enclosures containing herps that might irritate him. I also have live potted plants on the floor of the cage. I keep a water dropper on top that drips down to the plants. I also mist the cage with a bottle sprayer.
    Chams are a look but do not touch sort of animal. Especially when they are mature.

    Hey guys, I bought him a humidifier to keep him nice and refreshed. I was wondering if it is better to set the humidifier to warm or cool? I tried asking in the habitat forum, but no one replied :( I was wondering if any of you guys might know? Og perhaps? :D

    You should always dust. Have a set rotation between calcium without D3, herpitive supplement, and I suggest MINER-ALL. with panther chameleons only dust with calcium d3 twice a month. I don't feel very safe with the megaray bulbs, and bulbs that have uva, uvb and heat all together. It's easier to alter the settings to where they need to be if you have one of each, if your having problems with that bulb, switch over to a zoo med basking bulb, a reptisun 5.0 or 10.0 uvb light, depending on how tall your enclosure is. Any other questions you can always come to me for help and hopefully I'll have an answer.
