anthurium safe or not

I was wonder if it’s safe for a veiled because when I look it up in the search bar I found mix results, some people use it and others say they are toxic. Anyone had any experience with them?

this is what I found on an older forum "Anthurium contains oxalic acids as other plants used in chameleon cages (e.g. Ficus or Pothos). I wouldn't use those plants in cages with chameleons eating them, cause oxalic acids can abet renal diseases and chameleons are sensitive to those, too. Als long as your individuals don't eat any leaves or flowers everything will be fine."
