Hi
Can anyone help
My female yeman chameleon is roughly 1yr old age usually has a clutch of eggs every 3 months or so , laying about 40 eggs each time . This time all conditions were the same but she layed 32 eggs and seemed to have finished by burying them. The following week she continued to lay 1/2 eggs each day dropping from a branch in her vivarium . She has layed a total of 15 eggs this way and it doesn’t seem to be stopping . Any ideas ?

Do you have a laying bin for her? Please post a photo of her.
We don’t have the laying bin at the minute as she had finished laying and buried her eggs. She hadn’t layed any more eggs for 3 days then she started to drop 1/2 per day after that . Not digging and laying but dropping like a poo from a branch at height .

No vitamins or gutload?
