Chameleons have a tendency to be high maintenance. I've never seen anyone keep one in a glass cage. Something about their reflection stressing them out?

Gorgeous! I use to have a chameleon named Swirly (for the swirly tail), and he was a great little pet! Be very careful about their healthy though; the little suckers are really, really easy to kill.

Do they get any bigger? Assuming you don't kill them with ignorance, how long do they usually live?

Yeah they are high maintenence. I plan on putting repti turf on the sides so she cant see her reflection, and also has something else to climb on. She will also be moved into a mesh type enclosure when shes older and bigger. Yes, I understand they are high maintenence, but I did all my research before I bought her. Ive been thinking of one for a long time.

They do get bigger, yes, shes about a third grown, and they can live to be upwards of 5 years, but like any animal, that can vary.
