Is my Cham Safe?

I found this huge rubber tree plant that works great inside her cage. The problem is, my cham has a tendency to eat the leaves of whatever plant is in her cage. I'm worried that the sticky stuff that comes out of the leaves will hurt her. I give her lettuce almost every day because she enjoys it, but this morning i woke up to her munching on a rubber leaf before i could stop her. Should I be worried?

The sap could irritate the skin and would be a big problem if it got in her eyes. I would remove the tree if I were you, unfortunately.

The rubber tree is on the safe list, i just dont think many people who have chams who enjoy vegetation more than bugs haha

I would watch to make sure she doesn't get sick, the sap is mildly toxic if consumed. It can cause dermatitis and is dangerous to the eyes. It is not a good fit for your leave munching chameleon unfortunately.
