We were told we bought a male veiled chameleon but were so surprised a few days ago to discover the restlessness and digging meant we had a female! I took her to vet to confirm and x-ray showed A LOT of eggs.... Estimated around 50. She will not go near the bucket so we put the coconut substrate in a mound in the middle. We've been given liquid calcium and an emergency gruel to give her. She has dropped 7 eggs from the top of her cage over the last 8 hours. Does egg laying take this long??? She's about 7 months old and this is her first time and ours.... Any advice is greatly appreciated!
