Caught veiled bathing?


New Member
This morning I caught my veiled walking out of his water dish. I keep one in there solely for his dripper system and it’s shallow enough to where I know he’s safe if he stands. He’s never fallen and has plenty of highways in his enclosure. Should I be worried, or do they just like to soak every now and then?

They are not like other types of lizards that soak for shedding purposes. It’s possible he did slip or fall into to dish but like @jannb said cover it with some type of screen.

It would be a better idea to place a plant beneath the dripper to collect water. It's never a good idea to allow stagnant water near a chameleon
Sorry for the late reply, thank you. It is part of a dripper plant so the water is pumped, but I’ll probably switch him over to a pothos to make sure he’s safe.

If what you have is what I am thinking it is, its best to remove it and manually mist along with a dripper on the top of the cage. Better option would be to invest in a misting system.

Any type of reptile fountain branded drinking device is extremely unsanitary.
