Hi there. Here is some general information about Jackson's. They have pretty specific care needs. I have tagged one of our experts but she will need additional information from you. So fill out the info form with as much detail as possible and include pics of your entire enclosure, lighting, Supplements, and chameleon. @JacksJill

Here is some recommended information to include when asking for help in the health clinic forum. By providing this information you will receive more accurate and beneficial responses. It might not be necessary to answer all these questions, but the more you provide the better. Please remember that even the most knowledgeable person can only guess at what your problem may be.

I need to see better pictures to know if it is a boy or a girl. There are 3 kinds of Jackson. I can't know male or female until I can tell what kind of Jackson you have.
If you have a xantholophus it is a male / boy. If you have a jacksonii jacksonii it could be male / boy or female / girl. I would need better pictures to know.

Are you giving supplements? They need calcium and other vitamins to be healthy.
Calcium with no D3 2-3 times per week.
Calcium with D3 once a month.
Multi vitamin once a month.

They need either natural sunlight outside not thru a window or a UVB light.
They have other needs but this is a start.
