Lay bin set up.

Soooo, this is Fanci. She is a year and a couple months old. She was my first chameleon and I got her at 2 months old. It will be my first time with the experience of a gravid chameleon that lays unfertilized eggs. I just want to make sure that when the time comes, everything is right for her. I am still in the process of building a bigger inclosure, hopefully will be done within the next 2 weeks. For now is this set up good? I bought a brand new mop bucket that is 11x12 inches. It is full of clean play sand that has been moistened to where I have been able to make a sturdy tunnel that won’t cave on her. She has plenty of foliage and a couple of live plants for humidity. I have put a LOT of hard work and research into keeping her healthy, so she is a prized possession. I just want to make sure everything is ready for her. Also, this is what she looks like now, does she look like she has eggs? Or is becoming gravid?

Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated, especially since I just found out my panther cham is female too & want to be prepared for her!

I actually watched that video thank you for responding! I am not sure if she is ready yet or not, but I know everything I have read says to have one just to be sure. She doesn’t dig or roam around the bottom at this time. I haven’t seen the gravid colors that I have researched yet, but they’re all diff, so I just want to be sure!

Often with lower temp , not over feeding they can be older before laying . It’s hard on the girls the less laying the better ❤.
