Hello, I’m kind of new to these forums so I’m sorry if I’m not giving enough information. This isn’t my first chameleon but it is my first 3 month old chameleon and I feel like something is wrong. I’ve read that baby chameleons should be eating a lot but I think this whole day she’s only eat 5. I have her basking light and uvb light and I have misted today. She hasn’t drunken any water that I have seen

When you describe the current problem or probably under the History section, please be sure to include how long you have had your 3 mo old cam and how they got to you, so we can evaluate for stress. I mean, if it was shipped to you and you got it a day or two ago, it might be totally understandable that the little one is stressed and taking some time to figure out the new environment and routine. Call it need to know info to help us give you what you need.

Yeah thats what I was thinking. I just received her today this morning at 10:30 am. I think she is just stressed about being boxed and shipped over night but I just want to make sure that’s something that usually happens to chameleons. She’s a female Ambilobe Panther Chameleon. 3 months old like I said

When I received my veiled he was only 3 month old, I never saw him eat and I was worried too. I fed him so many crickets that I really wasn’t sure if he was eating or not, cause there always was left over (a lot) 3 month later... he’s still here, no sign of illness and getting bigger by the day

Give the cham a few days. Make sure the enclosure has a lot of plants and foliage to hide in. Use a feeder cup to monitor food intake rather than free range feeding.
