    Took in sick baby chameleon with MBD

    Hello! Just adding an update post since about a year and a half ago when I opened this thread for help-- The Vets told me it was likely for him to pass away at the time but using the advise here, he's now a fully grown healthy boy. To anyone who is seeing this archived post looking for help-...

    Okay, will do. He has pooped earlier today. He's also pooped once per day since he's gotten here.

    Okay, the good sign is that his tongue is in his closed mouth now, he was only doing it for a couple hours. I did just order the Oxbow that you recommended online that is coming in on Wednesday. I'm gonna leave him alone for now but he hasn't ate anything yet today, considering still trying to...

    Just an update: This is his new, smaller, enclosure all set up, I'm still gonna work on covering at least one more side with plexi glass or shower curtain so it can maintain a good temperature/humidity. Then I will move him in once I think it's good.

    Took in sick baby chameleon with MBD

    Hello, thank you so much I'll make sure to ask you any more questions that I get. One new concern I have for him is that his mouth is a little open today and his tongue is slightly sticking out and am not sure what it means. However positively, he is definitely less shaky in the legs since the...

    I have the light sitting on top of the mesh top, I like to move the bulbs to be over him since he's usually at the bottom.

    Some new questions I have: Because he is too slow too catch crickets I have to take some legs off the crickets and drop them in front of him. Does anyone have any recommended alternative strategies to feeding him? It takes a lot of time and mental to rip off 10 to 15 crickets' legs a day...

    I got the new enclosure this evening and going to work on putting it together tomorrow as well as taking ur advice into thought when testing out maintaining the temp & humidity. UVB is the lighting being used, my error! I appreciate also the tips for mashing up bugs instead as well as how many...

    Good catch, my mistake I meant to say UVB, NOT UVA bulb. He currently has a brand new UVB light bulb dueled with a brand new "Day light blue reptile bulb" for heating. Now that the topic is up, I guess there are no additional benefits for having UVA lighting as well? I'm thinking that might be...
