Is the poop healthy?


New Member

Hello, i have a veiled chameleon, I believe it's a female and I have been worried about the recent poops. It's surrounded by this liquid and today was like this. She pooped right after drinking water so I don't know if that's something normal or not. I just want to make sure is this is healthy or not. She's around 8 months older, and I didn't change anything on the terrarium or food. Thank you

How do you hydrate your veiled? If you share pictures with form someone could help you determine the sex. The care and husbandry differs slightly particularly when the reach adulthood

Welcome to the forum!

Are you aware that female veiled chameleons can produce eggs once mature without having been mated? If their diet and temperatures are wrong then they can produce huge clutches, suffer from follicular stasis, eggbinding, MBD and prolapse.

Do you have an egglaying bin in her cage?

This is why we're concerned about the see of your chameleon and other things to do with her care....and need photos.
