I"m no expert, my educated guess will be he needs to be hydrated ASAP. But wait till more Seasoned members Give their thoughts for a concrete answer.

Here is some recommended information to include when asking for help in the health clinic forum. By providing this information you will receive more accurate and beneficial responses. It might not be necessary to answer all these questions, but the more you provide the better. Please remember that even the most knowledgeable person can only guess at what your problem may be. Only an experienced reptile veterinarian who can directly examine your animal can give a true diagnosis of your chameleon's health.

Cage Info:
  • Cage Type - Describe your cage (Glass, Screen, Combo?) What are the dimensions?
  • Lighting - What brand, model, and types of lighting are you using? What is your daily lighting schedule?
  • Temperature - What temp range have you created (cage floor to basking spot)? Lowest overnight temp? How do you measure these temps?
  • Humidity - What are your humidity levels? How are you creating and maintaining these levels? What do you use to measure humidity?
  • Plants - Are you using live plants? If so, what kind?
  • Placement - Where is your cage located? Is it near any fans, air vents, or high traffic areas? At what height is the top of the cage relative to your room floor?
  • Location - Where are you geographically located?

Current Problem - The current problem you are concerned about.

Looks like dehydration. Are they misting the way they are supposed to? Any pics of the Cham and its eyes?

Hello everyone, I’m new to the site and not sure how to start a new feed to ask for help but I’m in desperate need of some.

My male chameleon has been laying on the viv floor for three days, his colour looks good and he’s been eating when I offer him food but just not moving much and looks like he’s have some trouble with his back legs although he still has a strong grip on them. I have pics and can complete the form but just wanted to make sure members was going to see this post before I upload them. Thanks for any help In advance.
