My veiled chameleon is really Ill and acting weird

The only thing your chameleon needs to eat is live bugs. While veiled’s will eat greens and other produce, they have no need for it and are unable to properly digest it. Get some safe live plants and he’ll nibble on those as he likes. :)

I just want to add to the info you have gotten. He is extremely overweight. A mature male should be eating no more then 2-3 feeders every other day. This can be reduced further to 3 feedings a week of 2-3 feeders max.

I am betting that he is having issues with his organ function due to the obesity.

A vet is needed. Blood work, xray need to be done. Blood work to see organ function with his liver and kidneys and then the xray to see if he has MBD.
