    Veiled Cham hasn't pooped in some time !

    My Cham hasn't pooped in some time now, I am thinking weeks. He also just hangs out in one spot of his cage, he seems sluggish, not to much basking as of late, he will come down and eat though. I made it a point to briefly pick though the leaves of his cage decor, just to make sure hes not...

    Possible tail issue?

    Hi, I've been on the forums for awhile but I just got my chameleon (Ralph) on Jan. 4 and I'm concerned about an odd brownish somewhat bumpy/deformed area on the tip of his tail. The store I got him from seemed to be taking good care of their chams (screen cages, real plants, knowledgeable), but...

    Mbd bad

    My male veiled cham has terrible MBD. I know this takes weeks or months to develop, but it honestly seems to have developed overnight. A few days ago he was chasing crickets all over the cage, now he can't even hold himself up or move in any direction. He lives in a 18x18x30 wire mesh cage...

    Not drinking?

    So yesterday I went to the vet because I was concerned my chameleon had a mouth infection again. Instead he got a fecal test and the vet said he saw a tiny percentage of parasites and that's why he isn't eating much and acting strange. He gave me an antibiotic and vitamin boost to give orally...

    My Chameleon Fell

    So my chameleon fell two days ago and took about a 30inch fall right onto the hardwood.

    Is this color okay?

    I've never seen seen my Jackson with this color on him before. Normally, he's only green and black. I noticed the spot of color after I finished holding him. It's a little hard to tell from the pictures but it's kind of a bluish grey color. Is this normal? Thanks in advance.

    Constant Peeling / Escape

    Hey all, So lately my almost 2 year old veiled male has constantly had some peeled skin (specifically around his 'yellow stripes') and it will not go away.

    Claws

    Hey, so I have a quick question about my 1 1/2 yr old veiled chameleon. After his latest shed, I noticed he was missing a claw on his back left food. I assumed it was simply pulled out, but there was no open whole- instead it seemed to have simply skinned over. I tried soaking it in extra...
