Hi everyone, I have a veiled cham who is about a year old, he's a bit chunky and he always has food in his dish. Recently he has been at the bottom of his enclosure digging through the substrate looking for something. But his food dish is full, what should I do?

Should we go to the vet? I lost a previous cham to a calcium disorder and I don't want to lose this one

It can take a couple hours or a day of two when she is digging do not disturb her if it takes a day or two she will probably sleep in the bin but you need to get one set up asap!

How long should she be in the bin?
The bin should be in her cage so she can be in it however long she wants/needs to be in it.

When she's in the bin and digging do not let her see you watching her. Give her peace to lay her eggs.

Does this look ok? The green plastic thing is her water fall, I used reptile substrate and burrowing sand mixed, it is really moist so it will hold it's shape, I put some mealworms in her dish with extra calcium (not in the photo) anything else?
