Go ahead and have him take the animal to the vet.

It could be that the animal has hyper-extended its tongue, and just needs a little time to heal the soreness.

He could have bitten it off.

It really could be alot of things.

Its likely injured one way or another though, but the vet would be able to ascertain exactly why.

Dr. Greek is going to be much more useful to your friend's chameleon than we could be, especially without knowing anything at all about the chameleon. It could be an injury, a vitamin deficiency, or any number of other things. He's an amazing vet, he'll be able to help.

I wish we had chameleon veterinarians around here! They're all at least 100 miles away unless I just don't know about them! :(
