Always take into account the potential risks and create a secure environment for everyone. Make sure all enclosures and areas are safe and the locks are working perfectly. Keep your new Reptile in an environment away from constant stress, such as a patrolling Cat or a curious Dog, especially if they’re a sensitive species, just like Chameleons who can get sick from anxiety. Remember to give them their own section of the house where they can relax without keeping one eye open at night. Most animals are territorial and get confident in their own space, but bringing them into a neutral territory, such as the living room or anywhere away from their sleeping space, puts them in a somewhat less aggressive state. Neutral spaces are a great way for your animals to interact with one another, but it is still not advisable to leave them alone together, no matter how long they’ve known one another.
