i found my chameleon on the ground this morning she seemd to be walking around. she would climb a bit then shed let herself fall straight down to the bottom. i feel like shes really broken somthing. or maybe her grip is weak, she walks like if she doesnt have a spine...all funky. definitly not walking normal, she can barley even stand steady. its like her body has another brain or somthing. what can i do for her? :/

Did you make ANY of the changes that I suggested on the 21st? If you did not I would say this is most likely a lost cause.

If you have a Zilla light-take it back. Anything Zilla is pretty bad for chams. If she is keeping her eyes closed during the day, I would highly suspect it could be the Zilla lamp. Get a linear flourescent tube, Reptisun or Reptiglo ASAP. Get rid of the red lamp and get a white houshould lightbulb. 90 is WAY too high. You should have a basking spot of 80 for a young cham like you have. Are you using analog thermometers and humidty guages? Get a digital thermometer. Round dial analog thermometers don't measure basking temps and are pretty worthless. A 2-4 month old should be eating 1/4" crickets and not pin heads, and should easily down 10-20 of those sized crickets a day. You also need to research supplements. You NEED to know what kind of plant you have. I wouldn't be to concerned with variety of food at this point, you just need to get her to eat something. With a young cham you do not have much time to turn things around.

Is she drinking? If her eyes are sunken in she is dehydrated. What is your humidity? How often do you spray her? Do you have a dripper?

Try to do a video so Julris can look at it. I've seen chams with severe MBD walking all crazy before but Julris way more of an expert.

you need to take a small needle like a safety pin or sewing needle and poke the bottom of the cup what are you using to poke your hole
