Females often will not eat and sometimes not drink prior to laying eggs. She may have been tasting the sand out of curiosity. You need to not let her see you if she is close to laying eggs, or she may decide it is unsafe to use the laying bin.

so i shouldnt worry about her eating the sand???when i got her she was doing the same thing eating the dirt from the plants...im really concerned...is it ok to give her a drop of olive oil if she is constipated just in case???

May I suggest that you don't make a new thread for every question. It makes it difficult to keep track of what's going on with one chameleon.

Its possible that she is eating dirt and sand because she is looking for nutrients. Perhaps you should fill out the "how to ask for help" questionaire at the top of the health section.

don't feel like you are bugging anyone. You are just trying to help your chameleon and we all understand that.;)
