Thanks in advance for any help! Let me start by saying that I just recently purchased a female veiled chameleon, she is about 6 inches in length. I already have a cameroon chameleon adn have had other species in the past, but this is the first time having a veiled. I did make the big no-no of buying this chameleon at a local pet store, but saw this chameleon and fell in love with her. Anyway onto the problem, I brought her home Friday evening and obviously she was pretty scared and stressed. I put her in her enclosure, which is a screened enclosure about 3 ft x 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 ft. I have a pothos in there and some sticks for her to climb on. The first couple of days she was green and seemed to be doing ok, really timid, but I figure that she is still unsure of where she is at. Today I came home from work and went in to mist her and noticed that she looked as if she was sleeping. Her color was green with her stomach being a kinda of black. When she woke up, while I was misting her, she was frightened, but did not move. I misted her cage and then thought I would leave her alone for a bit and see how she acted from there. I went back in the room about 15 minutes later to put some crickets in her cage and her left eye was closed. As I opened the cage she opened that eye and was frightened once again, like I said she has been more timid than any other chameleon I have owned, but figure that she is still new and unsure of her surroundings yet. Anyhow, I put some crickets in her cage to see how she would react and she started hunting after I put them in, I am not sure if she ate any crickets yet, she will just freeze if I stay in the room. I went back in there a few minutes ago and she was back on by the top of her cage on a perch. Her eyes are now open but I am not sure if she ate or not. The temp in her cage is about 90 degrees at the top and about 80 near the bottom with the humidity around 50-55 %. I wonder if she just got something in her eye, or if she is getting sick. I usually feed her between 6-10 crickets a day and she has been eating them, am I under feeding her? she is a little bit larger than my cameroon and he eats about 5-6 a day so i thought putting in a few more than him a day would be enough? maybe she needs more? My concern is with her stomach being kind of a black color and her eye being closed, is it time for a vet check up? Also I do have sand at the bottome of the enclosure in case she needs to lay eggs, as I have read the veils will lay eggs even if not mating. Any help here would be appreciated. I am sorry this is so long, but I wanted to make sure I was getting everything down taht I could to help everyone else out. Thanks again for the help!
