Make sure the feeders aren’t too big for her. They need a better gutload, and lettuce is only water. I suggest Cricket Crack or Sticky Tongue Farms Vit-All. At her age, give her as much as she’s willing to eat. For supplements, you need a phosphorus free and vitamin D3 free calcium supplement every feeding, a phosphorus free calcium with D3 supplement twice a month, and a multivitamin twice a month. She needs a dripper and a mister for watering, get rid of the bowl. She needs a linear t5 High Output uvb bulb and fixture and a white light heat bulb for her basking spot. Get rid of the red light and make sure it’s completely dark at night. Make sure the basking light and uvb are on for 12 hours a day, then pitch black at night. Pick up a temp. gun and an electronic humidity/temp. monitor from the hardware store. Could you post a pic of her foot and enclosure? I would find an exotics vet that has experience with chameleons near you a make an appointment. I would also possibly start her on liquid calcium.Chameleon Info:

How do I clean her eyes nd how often should I clean them ?
