Yes, they will sometimes turn and expose one side for more heat and uvb. It is not at all normal for a cham to have one or both eyes closed during the day. That is a huge warning sign that something is wrong. Baby chameleons are quite fragile and even the smallest error in husbandry can cause them to perish. Coming from a chain pet store, he could have something wrong with him. They aren’t known for selling healthy animals. Make the corrections I suggested and a vet visit with a fecal check for parasites is a good idea.
Appreciate it!! Will be calling vets today and have all items ordered for the correct setup! I sure hope he makes it until we can get him checked out and new terrarium gets here..
