Course: Chameleon Basics
Welcome to a crash course on Chameleon Basics. This mini-course is designed to touch on the highlights and get you started quickly. You may know some of it, but I encourage you to read through each section. The sections have a bullet point summary on top to give you an overview and then there is a brief explanation of each element. Within each section you may find further study links will take you deeper into the chosen subject. It could be a podcast, a video, or another article. These are included if your interest in the subject goes deeper than just the introductory paragraph. How deeply you explore is up to you. You are encouraged to skim through the entire course and then come back to the items most relevant to your situation. This course is designed to allow someone to expose themselves to the basics of chameleon keeping in 20 minutes. At the end you will know what needs to be done. The further study links are when you want to truly understand why you are doing it. But the most important thing is to get your chameleon in the best environment possible. From there you have time to understand the details. You can come back whenever you like to learn more!
