6 months old not pooping


New Member
My veil chameleon is bout 6 months old I had her about 3 months now, I am not finding any signs of her pooping I have checked the plants everywhere no sign of anything , she eats mostly crickets and leaves from my mulberry tree, also she is changing her colors a lot now but mostly she is green with orange spots I still have not handled her , she gets real big when i get to close to her sometimes she opens he mouth or even hisses, so I always back off. I do talk to her a lot

Just throwing it out there, chams are pretty much deaf. The do have some internal ear structure that allows them to sense low frequency sounds but that’s about it...

If she's eating then she should be pooping. Do you have a substrate in the cage?
Please answer the questions in the link I gave you and post a couple of photos of the chameleon and the cage.
