Can any one tell me what's wrong with my parents chameleon?

I know they don't hold it, the feed it crickets with calcium powder on them and they spray the cage every day and right now they only have 1 heat lamp because the other light burnt out. It looks gross and not normal and I can’t find any pictures of other chameleons with these bumps on their mouths. I guess he can open his mouth because they put crickets in the cage and they all disappear.


I hope I am not wasting time on a troll and this is a legit question.

Here is the "form" to help us, help you.

Like others said, he needs a vet.

Beyond that, the bulb that burned out... are we talking the UVB fluorescent? If that burned out, it was likely past the point of useful UVB. He needs some UVB. Some time outside on a mild day in some indirect light will help but he needs a linear UVB bulb such as reptisun 5.0.. The shed is an indication that there likely isn't enough humidity. Is that a live plant? Live plants help a lot with this. One type of feeder isn't enough. He also need D3 once a week and vitamins every other. Are the crickets cup fed or just allowed to roam around the cage to escape, die or hide? Someone needs to make sure that he is eating. At least watch him eat a few now and again. one misting a day isn't always enough either. Veileds are more likely to get by with that but a second misting can help a lot.

Good luck.
