Is this a sore? Mouth rot? Bottom of his mouth, right up front. He gaped today, which is rare for him. I noticed this red/pink mass, but don’t see inside his mouth often, so I’m just not sure.
- Your Chameleon - Ambilobe Panther Chameleon, 1 year, Male
- Handling - 1-2 Times per week.
- Feeding - Crickets (Gutload:Repashy Superload, Apples, Carrots, Oranges, Bee Pollen, Dandelion Leaves in season, and some other scraps) Eating has slowed a bit. Maybe 8-10 3/4" crickets daily.
- Supplements - Multivite 3x per month, Minerall no D3 2x per week, Calcium with D3 2x per month, Reptical 3-4x per week
- Watering - Misting for 1 minute every 6 hours, manually misting morning and evening when I hear the mister kick on(So he has enough time to drink). I watch/force him to drink 2-3x per week. Added a dripper after cage redesign as insurance.
- Fecal Description - Poops are massive! Urites has been a little orange since 6 months or so, but I watch him drink. No parasite tests yet.
- History - The only oddity is that his urites used to be pure white until about 6 months. At about that time, his poops got very large and his urites had hints of orange. I got more persistant about watching him drink, but the urites stayed orange.
- Cage Type - Screen 24"w x18"d x 36"h
- Lighting - Heat lamp with dome, Brand new 10.0 UVB added a couple weeks ago. Changed from 5.0.
- Temperature - Top is 90F, bottom is 70F falling a little bit on the coldest winter nights.
- Humidity - 40% humidity most of the time. When it's freezing outside, I try and compensate with extra misting cycles.
- Plants - Shefflera and Bromeliad. He killed all of his other plants, so I used some fake vines on the top of the cage to make him feel hidden. He's on his 3rd shefflera.
- Placement - In my study. Very quiet, no vents, some natural light, but no direct sunlight until the late spring early summer.
- Location - Northeast PA
