Chameleon eye


New Member
My chameleon has this thing that's clear on her eye and she can't get it off it's been about a week and a half maybe and don't know if it's stuck shed. She still eat she still poops regular so I'm not sure what it could be but it seems to once in awhile bother her and affect the way she changes colors in her mood. Is this an ectoparasite or something that's common with chameleons? You can kind of see it in the picture she changed colors once I was trying to grab her she obviously didn't like that I was trying to grab her so that I could get a good photo to post for everybody to help me out

Can you post a clearer picture? Lure her out with a worm and get a quick picture. I’ll also post a husbandry form just to be sure that her care is proper.
