Hey guys so today my chameleon tried to rip off a fake leaf and eat it so I tried feeding her some fruits and veggies which I never have before. I put it in both a bowl and hand fed it to her but she won’t eat anything unless it’s crawling around. Any tips? Because if she wants leaves and stuff I would love to give it to her but I don’t really know what to do if she wont eat it

Hi there... You have a Veiled and they will eat their plants. You will want to get rid of all fake plants and put live plants in. Fake plants are an impaction risk. This is a link to a safe plant list. Use the Veiled tested plants. Put 1 inch rock on top of the soil to keep the cham from eating the dirt. https://chameleonacademy.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/12/Chameleon-Plants-122819.pdf

They should not be fed fruit and veg. They are insectivores and their body does not process other items.

Here are some links that will assist you.

I really love this entire husbandry program. https://chameleonacademy.com/chameleon-husbandry-program-getting-started-with-chameleons/
And here is info on Veileds specifically https://chameleonacademy.com/veiled-chameleon-care/
