I got my veiled chameleon a couple days ago...when the last time she pooped some of it got stuck and is still on her vent and that area. How should i clean it up with out bothering her? I know it is a stupid topic, but i don't wan't it to get into anything serious :confused:

If you have a spray bottle mister you could put it on "stream" and try to spray it off. You could wipe very gently with a damp cloth. Generally they do not get messy. They will "wipe" on branches, etc. to clean up.

i did try that thanks.I was able to get some off not all of it. He is still very small so it is hard. I think i might wait a while before i try again because she wasn't loving getting sprayed there lol

You switch between he and she. Do you know the gender of your chameleon?

If your chameleon is female, a lay box may be needed if you do not already have one.

lol to be honest.......im a bit confused even though i know the males have the spur on the back of there back legs. If i post pics tomorrow could you help me out. Im stumped because i see something that could be a spur but its still very small, and im not sure if im just seeing things. One more thing as well. If it is a female what age do they start to lay there eggs because he/she is only about 3 months old

3 months is young unless you have been keeping the cage warm and feeding a lot. It's not unheard of for a female veiled to lay early.

Post a few clear pictures of the hide legs where the spurs should be and maybe one of the veiled itself.
